Oliktok Point is the eastern point of entrance to Harrison Bay, on Beaufort Sea, about 16 miles (26 km) west of Beechey Point, on the Arctic Plain, Alaska. The Inupiat name was first reported by Lieutenant W. J. S. Pullen, of the Royal Navy, as "Olikto," meaning "it shakes or trembles".

A system of radar stations along the north coasts of Alaska and Canada provide surveillance for air defense. The current system replaced the Distant Early Warning System of the Cold War. There are now 11 stations in Canada and 4 in Alaska such as this one at Oliktok Point. Read more here and here. Click here to download the CoastView app and explore Oliktok Point.
