The USAP collaboration site provides a shared area for common access to information and collaboration processes of importance to USAP program participants. It implements the concepts of automated work flow to provide a tool for anytime, anywhere.

The site supports the following USAP communities:

  • Operational support personnel (permanent and seasonal, and government and contractor)
  • Scientists with active NSF/OPP research grants
  • Tenant organizations, guests and visitors, including those authorized by the NSF to deploy to Antarctica for task-specific purposes
  • Select international collaborators for program operations and active science research programs
