Logistic services to NSF funded projects in Greenland

Current sites supported include Kangerlussuaq, Summit, Thule Air Base, and Raven Training Facility (the former DYE-2 radar site, see photo and location on map).

Greenland support by VECO includes

  • logistics support (transportation, air support, cargo movement, facilities),
  • field camp management and staffing,
  • military travel and base/area clearances,
  • lodging and arrangements at research or "hub" sites, and
  • coordinating support requests with the appropriate agencies and support contractors in Greenland and Denmark.

The will coordinate all Greenland summer support functions from KISS in Kangerlussuaq.

Scientists are responsible for providing their own cold weather and personal gear, including toiletries and comfortable clothing for non-working hours.

There are special opportunities for NSF funded projects for air transport to and from Greenland using US military aircraft. Get more information.
