Technical Advisory Committee
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is the monitoring body for the technical execution of the EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase. It consists of a Technical Coordinator, appointed by the Coordinator, and up to four other members.
TAC receives and reviews reports from each Work Package leader describing the technical progress of his/her Work Package and the upcoming plans. It reviews and assesses the levels of existing and planned technical coordination between the various Work Packages of the project as well as the levels of existing and planned technical coordination between the various project partners, including their sub-contractors and affiliated entities. It also provides regular feedback to each Work Package leader, assessing the progress of each Work Package, the interactions between the Work Packages and the project participants, and makes recommendations for future actions.
The members of the Technical Advisory Committee are:
- Jan-Geralt Bij de Vaate (Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON), Dwingeloo, The Netherlands)
- Tom Grydeland (Northern Research Institute (NORUT), Tromsø, Norway)
- Frank Lind (MIT Haystack Observatory, United States, Technical Coordinator and Chairman of TAC)
- Werner Singer (Leibniz-Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP), Kühlungsborn, Germany)
