Utqiagvik, Alaska - U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Stanton Brown, 611th Civil Engineer Squadron commander, briefs U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. David Nahom, commander, Alaskan NORAD Region, Alaskan Command and Eleventh Air Force, on a cage designed to trap intruding polar bears at Point Barrow Long Range Radar Site during a visit, north of Utqiagvik, Alaska, Feb. 4, 2023. The site is composed primarily of infrastructure and equipment dating back to 1957 and is manned by a few contractors and two active-duty Airmen, who deploy on rotation approximately every 30 days from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The intelligence provided by Point Barrow and other radar stations strategically located across the state of Alaska enables senior leaders the ability to make timely informed decisions in defense of North America.
