JABAS - Joint Agile Basing Airpower Seminar

Goal of the Joint Agile Basing Airpower Seminar Series – the goal of JABAS, also known as Arctic Airpower Seminars, is to exchange ideas, practical applications, and build relationships that enhance airpower projection and domain awareness in the high north.  The quarterly series sits between the strategic and tactical levels, examining operational-level challenges associated with agile basing.  Each seminar is dedicated to a deep investigation of a specific element associated with planning, executing and sustaining agile basing solutions in a rapidly changing environment.  One key difference between JABAS and other defense fora is that defense and security objectives are viewed through an integrated lens that considers non-defense factors, such as the concerns of indigenous communities, climate science realities, and commercial/economic development.  This report summarized the seminar held 22 September 2020 which concentrated on hearing from new voices, especially indigenous leaders, airpower practitioners, academics, engineers, and scientists to understand their perspectives on the challenges and possibilities associated with agile basing.
