The 2017 IEEE Dennis J. Picard Medal has been awarded to Professor Hugh Griffths, for "Technical leadership and exceptional contributions to multistatic radar"
For nearly a century, the IEEE Awards Program has paid tribute to researchers, inventors, innovators, and practitioners whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, and the engineering profession. Each year the IEEE Awards Board recommends a small number of outstanding individuals for IEEE's most prestigious honours.
Professor Sarah Spurgeon, UCL Electronic & Electrical Engineering Head of department, said:
"This is the highest award made by the IEEE in the area and is a great honour for both Hugh and EEE. I am sure you will all wish to join me in sending warmest congratulations to Hugh."
