Session Abstract: 

Come to our event to learn more about The International Cooperative Engagement Program for Polar Research (ICE-PPR). The U.S. Department of Defense has developed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with partner nations in order to improve defense and security capabilities in the Arctic. ICE-PPR is the vehicle for this collaboration. Partner nations include:

  • United States of America Department of Defense (USA DoD)
  • The Department of National Defence of Canada (CAN DND)
  • The Ministry of Defence of the Kingdom of Denmark (DEN MOD)
  • The Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Finland (FIN MOD)
  • The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF)
  • The Ministry of Defence of the Kingdom of Norway (NOR MOD)
  • The Government of the Kingdom of Sweden (SWE)

These partners recognize the benefits to be obtained from standardization, rationalization and interoperability of military equipment. By building relationships in the region, we are seeking to make the best use of respective research and technology development capacities, eliminate unnecessary duplication of work, encourage interoperability, and obtain the most efficient and cost-effective results through cooperation in Polar Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) Projects. Ultimately, the goal is to improve respective conventional defense and security capabilities through the application of emerging technology, while having a common need for Polar RDT&E to satisfy common operational requirements. The underlying theme of this work is a shared desire for strong cooperative relationships that preserve safe, stable and secure Polar Regions.
