Arctic Security

Sandia partners to anticipate—and resolve—emerging Arctic national security challenges. Security in the Arctic impacts the world stage. A secure Arctic requires the logistics, information, and physical resources needed to prevent or respond to a security event.

Security in the Arctic spans operations and infrastructure. Whether the threat comes from sea rise to low-lying forward bases or increased Arctic traffic, as a National Laboratory, Sandia accomplishes tasks that are integral to the mission and operation of our sponsoring agencies.

Physical Security

Whether it is the ability to monitor a sensitive area or prevent unauthorized access to equipment such as grid or critical infrastructure controls, physical security systems in the Arctic must be reliable and sustainable. Learn about Sandia’s expertise in physical security in the Arctic.
