The United States Naval War College NWC in Newport, Rhode Island hosted the Fleet Arctic Operations Game FAOG on 13-16 September 2011. The FAOG was developed and executed under the sponsorship of Commander, Second Fleet C2F initially and then Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces USFF following the integration of the two staffs. The purpose of the FAOG was to identify gaps that limit sustained maritime operations in the Arctic and recommend DOTMLPFP actions in order to inform United States Navy leadership. After reviewing the research literature, the game sponsor and NWC Wargaming Department WGD jointly developed three overarching objectives based on C2F s areas of interest Develop prioritized DOTMLPF-P maritime actions which support implementation of the Arctic Road Map List the DOTMLPF-P gaps in maritime forces ability to conduct sustained maritime operations in the Arctic and Develop near-term strategies to mitigate these identified gaps. These objectives were framed to consider the operational level factors e.g., risk, time space, force composition, physical and environmental that influence the maritime force s ability to perform its missions. Additionally, these objectives allowed for consideration of potential partnerships and interoperability issues encountered among U.S. and international forces and organizations.
