2014 IEEE PRESIDENTS' CHANGE THE WORLD COMPETITION

IEEE Presidents' Change the World Competition

2014 IEEE CORPORATE RECOGNITIONS

IEEE Corporate Innovation Award
Sponsored by IEEE

Defense Advanced Research
Projects Agency (DARPA)
For many decades driving world-changing technological
innovations

The IEEE Presidents' Change the World Competition recognizes
and rewards students or a team of students who, through the identification of humanitarian needs and the development of projects
to meet those needs, demonstrate the capacity to improve the
lives of many people.
Participants may compete as an individual or as a team. Individuals or team members must be at least 18 years of age and an IEEE
member at the time their entry is submitted. The leader of the
team or the individual whose entry is chosen as the top prize will
be invited to receive his/her prize at the IEEE Honors Ceremony.
First-Place winners receive US$10,000. If a team is selected for
First Prize, the cash is split equally among the team winners.

First-Place winners of the Competition include:
2013-Low-Cost Spirometer, Team Members: Andrew Brimer
and Abigail Cohen
2012-Clean Water: Transforming a Natural Disaster into a
Natural Resource, Team Members: Stephen Honan,
Kevin Baum, Sarah Yazouri
2011-PoaS@úde  Telemedicine Project, Team Members:
Alecio Binotto, Flavio Avila, Diego Bonesso, Mateus
Bisotto, Alexandro Bordignon
2010-e.quinox, Team Members: Mohammad Mansoor
Hamayun and students at Imperial College London,
London, U.K.
2009-NanoLab: A Hand-Held Diagnostic Laboratory, Team
Members: Drew Hall and Richard Gaster

The visionary innovations conceived or funded by the Defense
Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) have changed
society for the better around the world. Established in 1958 with
the mission of reducing "technology surprise" for the U.S. military by developing technology first, DARPA's contributions to
cutting-edge technology have impacted peoples' lives beyond
defense applications. The birth of companies and in some cases
entire industries have resulted from DARPA-funded projects.The
creation of the first wide-area, packet-switched communications
network using computers running similar software and switching protocols, known as ARPANet, during the 1980s was the
precursor to the Internet that we know today. DARPA also drove
the fundamental technologies for triangulating satellite signals
with accurate clocking for global positioning systems. It also
enabled the miniaturization of devices to create small, batterypowered GPS receivers, first for military platforms but now also
pervasive in our automobiles and recreational gadgets. Research
sponsored by DARPA also resulted in the computer-aided design tools that spurred the rebirth of the semiconductor industry
in the U.S. and enabled creation and continued scaling of the
more complex and powerful chips found in our computers and
mobile devices. DARPA's contributions also include the creation
of microelectromechanical systems combining sensors, actuators,
and computing elements for applications such as air-bag sensors.
The United States has enjoyed a substantial advantage in electronic warfare over the past several decades thanks to DARPAsponsored innovations. DARPA's successes in the military arena
include major breakthroughs in radar, radio, directed energy,
positioning/navigation/timing, cyber, sensing, engineered biology, intelligence/surveillance/reconnaissance, command/control/
communications, electronic warfare, manufacturing, photonics,
and thermal management. DARPA's current research focus is on
areas including processing information at a massive scale, biology
as technology, and rethinking complex systems.
Located in Arlington, Va., DARPA is under the direction of
IEEE Fellow Dr. Arati Prabhakar.

Scope: For an outstanding and exemplary innovation by an industrial entity, governmental or academic organization, or other
corporate body, within the fields of interest to the IEEE
