In November 1971, the Advanced Research Projects Agency sponsored a Symposium on Arctic Logistics Support Technology. ARPA's interests in the Arctic were identified to focus on mobility, undersea operations, and information gathering. Important technologies include such things as surface effect vehicles, under-ice acoustics, remote sensing, and cold regions construction. It was emphasized that the ARPA arctic research program is an integral part of the total national arctic program. The specific objective of the Symposium was to identify, examine, and propose better ways of providing support to ARPA's research efforts in the Arctic Basin. A broader objective was to provide an exchange of information and ideas on arctic technology between representatives of government, industry, and the scientific community for the purpose of stimulating fresh approaches to the problems of arctic research and operations support. Papers presented described both the current state of the art for arctic logistics support technology and projected future development. Other papers were read by abstract only and were distributed to Symposium participants. Papers were divided into three main subject areas: (1) transportation, (2) life support, and (3) activity support; i.e., meeting special needs of field investigators in performance of their activities. Appendix 1 lists all speeches and papers presented at the Symposium as well as those read by abstract.
