Threats such as attackers, accidents, wear and tear, and natural forces make analytics for resilience a challenging task. The arctic region presents distinct resilience challenges compared to other regions of the world. Threat detection and mitigation become particularly challenging when considering regional influence such as: a cold climate, climate change, harsh weather, a lack of fast access to real-world resources, a sparse distribution of technologies including telecommunications towers/cables and real-world sensors in networks, a lack of fall back and recovery options, large distances between technologies and civilisation, as well as winter darkness. The purpose of this chapter is to provoke a discussion on analytics and decision-making challenges for resilience in the arctic, and how these might be addressed by current research in the academic space. Specifically, this chapter outlines a number of academic works for situational awareness and decision-making support including tools and methods to improve resilience of organisations, infrastructures and missions. I discuss how these works might be applied in the arctic, as well as the challenges in doing so.
