Supporting Arctic Sovereignty & Security

ATCO Frontec was the first Canadian company to operate and maintain the North Warning System (NWS) from 1987-2000. From there, our Inuit partnership Nasittuq Corporation held the contract until 2014. Today, Nasittuq has just been awarded a seven-year in-service support contract for the NWS, providing exemplary logistics and technical services for the Department of National Defence and NORAD.

Supporting our Military
