For contributions to the development of
multiple phase-center airborne surface
surveillance and targeting radars

For contributions to power electronics, especially high-frequency power conversion

Marshall Greenspan's pioneering work on multiple phase-center
interferometric processing has significantly enhanced the state-ofthe-art in ground-moving target indication (GMTI) radar technology critical to today's military radar systems. Dr. Greenspan's
radar engineering career began in the early 1970s with the design
and development of the navigation, targeting, and terrain-avoidance radar in the U.S. Navy's carrier-based A-6 Intruder attack
aircraft. The A-6 was designed to fly undetected at low altitudes
for great distances at night and in all weather conditions, find its
target, and return safely to its carrier. In the early 1980s, this radar
was upgraded under Dr. Greenspan's guidance to generate highresolution images of the surface area illuminated by the radar
beam. Indicators were overlaid upon the image to pinpoint the
location of any ground moving targets found within the ground
image scene. This revolutionary technology was adapted by the
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the
U.S. Air Force in a demonstration program named Pave Mover
that put a side-looking radar in a high-speed U.S. Air Force EF111 to detect and track armored ground vehicles at long range
while simultaneously guiding missiles to their intended targets.
This technology became part of the U.S. Air Force/Army E-8
Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS), which
provides ground surveillance to military commanders to support
attack operations. With Dr. Greenspan's expertise, JSTARS enabled U.S. forces to map the position of the retreating Iraqi army
during Operation Desert Storm. This work helped demonstrate
the feasibility of GMTI space-time adaptive processing (STAP)
for air-to-surface moving target radars at a time when computing technology was inferior to what is currently available. STAP's
importance to the radar community continues to grow as computing technology and radar hardware improve.
An IEEE Fellow and recipient of the first IEEE Warren D.
White award for Excellence in Radar Engineering (2000), Dr.
Greenspan is a senior consulting systems engineer (retired) with
Northrop Grumman, Norwalk, CT, USA.

A world authority on high-frequency power conversion design,
modeling, and control, Fred C. Lee has pioneered technologies
that provide more efficient power conversion and improved reliability in devices and systems, impacting applications ranging from
personal computing and mobile devices to military and industrial
equipment. Dr. Lee introduced "soft switching" technologies during the 1980s to combat the undesired switching losses, electrical
and thermal stresses, and electromagnetic interference caused by
high-frequency power conversion. His zero-voltage switching for
resonant, quasiresonant, multiresonant, and pulse-width-modulated converters have become core components of modern power
electronics equipment and systems. During the 1990s, Dr. Lee and
his students developed a novel multiphase voltage regulator (VR)
module for new generations of Intel microprocessors. Dr. Lee and
his students have generated 25 U.S. patents addressing key areas
such as power delivery architecture, modularity and scalability,
control and sensing, integrated magnetics, and advanced packaging and integration. Today, every PC and server microprocessor
is powered with this VR. These technologies have been further
extended to high-performance graphical processors, server chipset and memory devices, networks, telecommunications, and all
forms of mobile electronics. Dr. Lee has helped power electronics
industries realize their full power-saving potential by overcoming
the cost and reliability roadblocks caused by using nonstandard
components and labor-intensive manufacturing. He and his team
have developed advanced integration concepts and technologies
suitable for standardization and automation using integrated power electronics modules (IPEMs) that have provided improvements
in performance and cost reduction. IPEMs have been commercialized and are widely used today in powering the new generation of microprocessors, photovoltaic converters, variable-speed
motor drives, and electric/hybrid vehicles.
An IEEE Fellow and member of the U.S. National Academy of
Engineering, Dr. Lee is currently a University Distinguished Professor with the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University,
Blacksburg,VA, USA.
