The research program of the Department is centred on applied research in some of the core areas of engineering.

Signal Processing Algorithms (SPA)

The SPA group's research involves the development of mathematical algorithms for manipulation of ordered numerical data and can also be considered to fall under the field of computational/numerical mathematics.

Digital Radar and Radio Systems (TIGER)

We operate three high frequency radars (TIGER) which form part of an international network called Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN).
