Shielding the Baltic Sea

The Baltic Sea lies at the beating heart of Europe. Its waters carry merchant ships that drive international trade and its seafloor contains the communication and power infrastructure needed for daily life in nations across the continent.

Unfortunately, these same characteristics also make it a highly attractive target both for criminal groups and for nations that want to disrupt our way of life. Recent attacks have shown the vulnerability of key Baltic Sea assets.

So, what are the major threats that the Baltic Sea faces? And how can we ensure that its waters remains safe and free from conflict?

Our series ‘Shielding the Baltic Sea’ looks at the security challenges facing this famous sea as well as some of the advanced technological solutions that are helping to address them.

We would like to thank the Swedish Armed Forces, the Finnish Defence Forces and the Swedish Coast Guard for footage and support.


The difference is you.
