To recognize an individual, whose age has not reached the 41th birthday by the nomination deadline, and who has made outstanding contributions to aerospace and electronic systems. The “early career award” for Radar is the Fred Nathanson Award. This early Career Award is for an individual working in all the other areas of interest of AESS.
Nomination Deadline: December 1 (selections completed by February 28).
Nominations to IEEE AESS Early Career Award are non-compatible with parallel nominations to Fred Nathanson Award. The endowed Fred Nathanson Early Career award is only for an individual working in radar technologies; the AESS Early Career Award is for an individual working in all the other areas of interest of AESS. In case of double nomination the decision to void one or the other nomination is left to the AESS Awards Chair. Any unresolved disagreements between the Fred Nathanson and Early Career awards chairs will be settled by the AESS President. A nominee can only be in one of the two categories and can only win one of the two awards. Eligibility and Selection process shall comply with procedures and regulations established in IEEE and Society governing documents, particularly with IEEE Policy 4.4 on Awards Limitations. Previous winners of this award are ineligible.
Criteria for the candidate selection are quality, significance and impact of contributions, papers published in archival journals, papers presented at conferences and symposia, patents, best paper awards, editorial roles, demonstration of leadership, and, in general all the demonstrated and objective achievements which have led to advancement of the AES engineering profession. The award selection committee will develop the selection criteria and appropriate weightings based on the impact and breadth of the nominees’ contributions to the advancement of AES knowledge and technologies and the strength of reference letters.
