The consortium is represented by the Principal Investigator who has the ultimate scientific and technical responsibility of the project and is the formal contact point between ESO and the Consortium. The PI chairs the Executive Board formed by the representatives of the leading institutes.

The Project Scientist leads the development of the science program and top-level requirements, working in close contact with the Project Manager who takes the responsibility to manage the overall project. The project manager is supported by a System Engineer and by a Software System Engineer which are in charge to supervise the overall system design. SE and SSE work in close contact with the Instrument Scientist which makes sure that adopted technical solutions match the foreseen instrument scientific needs. PI, PM, SE, SSE, PS and IS form the Project Office which ultimately and collegially encompass all programmatic activities of the project.
