Proposal Preparation Reference Information —
Antarctic Research Solicitation

Facilities for research in Antarctica include three year-round research stations with scientific equipment and laboratories, helicopters, ski-equipped airplanes, surface vehicles, a wide array of additional research facilities and temporary (usually summer) camps, and two research ships. These facilities are operated by NSF's Section for Antarctic Infrastructure and Logistics (703-292-8032) through several support contracts and through agreement with other Federal agencies.

Some useful links that generally describe U.S. Antarctic Program facilities are

The material in this document supplements the information in the Antarctic Research solicitation and is provided to assist proposers in developing their proposals for Antarctic research.  Additional information can be found on USAP.gov on the Information for Proposers pages.
