Danish Arctic Command

From Canadian Power Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Joint Arctic Command (Danish: Arktisk Kommando; Faroese: Arktisk Kommando; Greenlandic: Issittumi Sakkutooqarfik) is a direct Level II authority in the Danish Defence Command. Joint Arctic Command's primary mission in peacetime is to ensure the Unity of the Realm sovereignty by monitoring the area around the Faroe Islands and Greenland. The command also handles tasks such as fishery inspection, Search and Rescue (SAR), patient transport and other tasks of social character.

As a result of the Defence Agreement 2010-2014, it was decided to close the two commands, Island Command Faroes and Island Command Greenland and replace them with the joint service Arctic Command. The command will act as the connection point and coordinator of cooperation between the armed forces and local authorities. Both Island Commands Faroes and Greenland were previously also components of the NATO Command Structure (NCS), but there is no confirmation that the new Arctic Command is in the NCS as well.
