Flight crews that complete transport missions to Antarctica then qualify for one day of service for each flight mission carried out within a 24-hour time frame.

There are no large land predators in Antarctica. Provides services for launching, tracking, and recovering large unmanned, high-altitude research balloons. Women and members of minority groups are encouraged to apply for participation in all aspects of the U.S. Antarctic Program. A program solicitation, revised annually in March, describes the opportunity, provides application instructions, and lists prior participants. Provides ice-coring and drilling support for NSF-sponsored research in both polar regions and at high altitudes, maintains and operates existing equipment, and develops new systems.

It is the largest base in Antarctica by a considerable margin with around 1000 personnel (up to 1250 possible) in summer and 250 in the winter.

The NSF funds Antarctic-related science on the Antarctic continent, at U.S. universities, federal laboratories, and other similar U.S. organizations. Provides tracking and data-acquisition support and launch vehicle/payload tracking to polar-orbiting spacecraft from McMurdo Ground Station, a NASA-owned automated 10-meter tracking system.
