The wait to find out who we’ll be applying for jobs with next year is over, and the winning bidder is……
Lockheed Martin! http://www.lockheedmartin.com/
More information to come soon. I will be posting information on how to apply for a job with the US Antarctic Program next season just as soon as I find out myself.
We should have more details soon on what the turnover will be like. In reality, the season is over in six or seven weeks, and that doesn’t leave very much time for the new contractor to come in and make changes before the last plane leaves. It will be really interesting to see what happens; this is after a three-year extension to the Raytheon ten-year contract, something that could have happened before we even applied for jobs with the program in 2009.
We’ll keep you updated.
