Aviat Keeps Antarctica Research Centers Connected

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has operated the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) since its inception in the 1950s. Program scientists perform a variety of critical research projects there that rely heavily on communications with the outside world—for transmission of research data for analysis, for contact with other researchers in the U.S. and other regions of the world, for personal communications between the Antarctica staff and their families and others, and for many other purposes.
