Distinguished Professor Asad Madni is the 2012 Recipient of the Prestigious IEEE AESS Pioneer Award
Professor Asad M. Madni has been selected to receive the 2012 prestigious IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society's (AESS) Pioneer Award for his pioneering contributions and accomplishments that have stood the test of time. His award citation reads “for seminal and pioneering contributions to the development and commercialization of aerospace and electronic systems”. The Pioneer Award has been given annually since 1949 to an individual or team for “contributions significant to bringing into being systems that are still in existence today.” These systems fall within the specific areas of interest to the society, that is, electronic or aerospace systems. The contributions for which the award is bestowed are to have been made at least twenty (20) years prior to the year of the award, to ensure proper historical perspective.
The award will be presented to Professor Madni, depending on his availability, at either the AUTOTESTCON Conference to be held at the Anaheim Disneyland Resort and Conference Center, September 10-13, 2012; or at the Digital Avionics and Systems Conference (DASC) to be held in Williamsburg, Virginia, October 14 -19, 2012.
