Arctic Patrol and Reconnaissance: Market Insight and Requirements Report 2016
As the Arctic becomes an increasingly important strategic and political region, governments across the region are making their interests and priorities in the region known. As these strategies are published, military and civilian stakeholders are beginning to turn their attention to delivering on these policy objectives.
Up to 25% of the world’s undiscovered oil reserves are believed to lie in the Arctic. Territorial disputes between the US, Canada, Russia, Denmark and Norway are increasing, with Russia, in particular, laying claim to several areas of arctic shelf and being prepared to defend those claims at the UN.
This report provides a select overview of the Arctic patrol and reconnaissance market and details future programmes and requirements.
