IEEE Life Fellow Asad M. Madni is the recipient of this year’s IEEE Medal of Honor. He is being recognized “for pioneering contributions to the development and commercialization of innovative sensing and systems technologies, and for distinguished research leadership.”
After the aerospace and defense markets began to decline following the end of the Cold War, Madni led the defense conversion of the GyroChip technology from the aerospace and defense sectors to the automotive and commercial aviation markets. The GyroChip technology he helped develop at BEI revolutionized navigation and stability in aerospace and automotive systems, making them safer. Read the full article.
