Observations of Ultra-Heavy galactic cosmic rays (GCR) help to distinguish the possible origins of GCRs. The Trans-Iron Galactic Element Recorder (TIGER) measures the charge (Z) and energy of GCRs using a combination of scintillation counters, Cherenkov counters, and a scintillating fiber hodoscope. TIGER has accumulated data on two successful flights from McMurdo, Antarctica: the first launched in December of 2001 with a total flight duration of 31.8 days and the second in December of 2003 with a total flight duration of 18 days. We present a preliminary analysis of the combined data from both flights for Ultra-Heavy GCRs.
