To recognize a radar engineer for outstanding achievements due to a major technical advance (or series of advances) in the art of radar engineering. The advance, significant, public, and well known, shall be evidenced by technical papers, inventions, presentations, or products.
Dana White Starr and Warren H. White established the Warren D. White Memorial Fund in 1999 and the Warren D. White Award to memorialize their father.
$2,000 USD, a plaque, and travel expenses. Up to $1,000 USD to attend the award ceremony can be authorized by the AESS President.
If there are multiple winners, each will receive a plaque and they will equally share the stipend.
Funded by the Warren D. White Memorial Endowment (administered by AESS, managed by IEEE Foundation)
At the IEEE Radar Conference or International Radar Conference (depending on which is held in a particular year)
The nominee shall have made a major technical contribution, or a series of such contributions, to the art of radar engineering. This contribution shall be evidenced to the radar community through technical papers, presentations, inventions, or products. It is expected the nature of the nominee’s contribution shall be so significant its impact will be well-known to the radar community at large, inclusive of the members of the AESS Radar Panel.
