Arranging virtual tabletop exercises has proven to be an efficient way of sharing knowledge and training across borders.
As an example, the fifth Joint Arctic SAR TTX in December 2020 was arranged virtually in Zoom due to the Covid-10 pandemic. The event was arranged by AECO, JRCC North Norway, the Icelandic Coast Guard and the ARCSAR project. The Joint SAR TTX was attended by nearly 130 participants including 26 AECO members and SAR entities from Canada, Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Islands, Svalbard, mainland Norway, USA, Finland, UK, and New Zealand. The technical hosting in Zoom was handled by AECO.
