The IEEE Dennis J. Picard Medal for Radar Technologies and Applications was established in 1999, in honor of Dennis J. Picard, whose lifetime of work at Raytheon Company helped make them a leader in tactical missile systems. In the evaluation process, the following criteria are considered: field leadership, contribution, originality, breadth, inventive value, publications, other achievements, society activities, honors, duration, and overall strength of the nomination.
The award consists of a gold medal, bronze replica, certificate and honorarium.
Funded by the Raytheon Co.
