JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska — An electronic sensor on the more than 800-mile stretch of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System was just triggered. A potential leak is happening, so you send a team out to respond. When the team shows up, it was a false alarm, but then another alarm goes off, then another, and before you know it every sensor is chiming. This scenario is very real, and all it takes is one malicious cyber attacker to make it happen.
Approximately 600 U.S. Soldiers and 39 members of the Canadian Brigade Group conducted a winter field training exercise in sub-freezing temperatures at the Donnelly Training Area outside of Fort Greely, Alaska, as a part of Exercise Arctic Eagle 2018. The winter training was intended to improve arctic skills as well as individual and collective tasks, while simultaneously strengthening our international partnership with Canadian service members.
