To carry out our work, British Antarctic Survey operates three research stations in the Antarctic and two on subantarctic South Georgia, and one in the Arctic. Research platforms include also the ice-strengthened RRS Sir David Attenborough and a fleet of specially adapted aircraft and various off-the-shelf and specialised vehicles.
