Ascent is aiming for Arctic
Ascent Systems Technologies is awarded the contract to develop a prototype of the Autonomous Environment Monitoring & Security (AEMS) system for the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) assets in the #Arctic.
As outlined in the Government of Canada’s defence policy Strong, Secure, Engaged (SSE), and in the Arctic and Northern Policy Framework (ANPF), the CAF will enhance its mobility, reach and footprint in Canada’s North to support operations and exercises, and its ability to project force in the region. This commitment requires pursuing innovative solutions to ensure that military fixed ground-based assets are optimized for use in the Arctic environment, including the ability to monitor and secure such critical assets and supporting infrastructure. #Canada#military#infrastructure#environment#security#project
