Consortium, Scientific and Management Team

The TIGER project was initiated by Professor Peter Dyson in the Department of Physics and the radars were developed by Professor John Devlin in the Department of Engineering.

The TIGER radars are supported and operated by a consortium of university, government, and international partners and each organisation is represented by a Co-Investigator on the Scientific and Management Team.
