The National Science Foundation's (NSF) RSL program supports the fieldwork of research projects funded through science programs in the Arctic Sciences Section. The RSL program was created to make Arctic fieldwork safer, more efficient, and more cost-effective. Battelle Arctic Research Operations (ARO) is the prime logistics contractor for the RSL program. The NSF encourages researchers to make use of services provided through the RSL program by working with Battelle ARO.
