Abstract
This study considers alternative scenarios for the Canadian Arctic’s future. The best and worst scenarios from environmental, economic and political standpoints, as viewed by Canadian Forces Aerospace Warfare Centre personnel, are analyzed using Game Theory. The game consists of three players: the Air Force, the Canadian Government and the Adversary. Possible courses of action are assumed for each of the players, a scoring method is adopted, and the game is executed as a table-top exercise. This yields points of equilibrium from which the Air Force can determine the range of actions that it may take in the defence of Canada’s Arctic. This range of actions should provide the Air Force with a general sense of the degree of effort that might be required in the Arctic in coming years.
