"Operation Deep Freeze was a series of expeditions between 1955 and 1998, signaling a renewal in American interest in the Antarctic. These expeditions were military operations run and supported by various American military agencies. Rear Admiral Byrd was Officer in Charge; and so the most senior US representative monitoring political, scientific, legislative and operational activities making up the US Antarctic programs" Made by B&L to give perfect vision to pilots and the USN sailors and service men in the snow at below zero temperatures. The G31 Double Gradient Mirror, combined with the Kalichrome lens, protected them from getting snow blind.
