2015 ieee technical field awards

IEEE Reynold B. Johnson Information Storage Systems Award
Sponsored by Hitachi Data Systems and Hitachi Global Storage Technologies

dov moran, amir Ban,
and simon litsyn

For pioneering contributions to storage systems based on
flash memory

The innovations of Dov Moran, Amir Ban, and Simon Litsyn,
while working at M-Systems, drove the creation of the USB
flash drive, the world's most popular portable memory device.
Mr. Moran founded M-Systems in 1989 to create storage systems utilizing the advantages of rewritable flash memory technology. Dr. Ban introduced dynamic mapping techniques for
organizing storage on flash memory, allowing the computer to
use the flash memory as a disk drive. Prof. Litsyn introduced
signal processing techniques that provided increased memory
density to significantly reduce the cost of flash memory devices.

The original USB flash drive, called DiskOnKey, was introduced
by M-Systems in 2000 and quickly replaced the floppy disk for
storing and transferring data. M-Systems was acquired by SanDisk in 2006.
Mr. Moran is the founder and Chairman of Comigo,Yarkona,
Israel, among other companies.
Dr. Ban is vice president of business development and chief
technology officer with Eyessessment, Ramat Hasharon, Israel.
An IEEE Senior Member, Prof. Litsyn is a professor with the
School of Electrical Engineering, Tel-Aviv University, Israel.

IEEE Richard Harold Kaufmann Award

IEEE Joseph F. Keithley Award in
Instrumentation and Measurement

Sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications Society

Sponsored by Keithley Instruments, Inc. and the IEEE Instrumentation
and Measurement Society

Charles John mozina

Jean-Charles Bolomey

For contributions to the electrical protection of synchronous generators

For pioneering contributions to efficient
modulated probe array technology for
fast electromagnetic near-field techniques and microwave imagery

Charles John Mozina's expertise in generator protection contributed to standards for protecting generators across many industries.
A key contributor to IEEE working groups on power systems
protection, Mr. Mozina has helped diagnose problems and provide solutions to ensure safe and reliable equipment operation.
He was the lead author of the IEEE Tutorial on the Protection
of Synchronous Generators, which became the leading tool for
educating engineers on how to protect synchronous generators.
He also provided leadership and major technical content for a
working-group effort that developed hybrid grounding. Other
important contributions helped alert the industry to off-line inadvertent generator energizing hazards and the inclusion of protection methods for these events in the IEEE C37.102 generator
protection standard.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Mr. Mozina is currently a consultant residing in Palm Harbor, FL, USA.

Jean-Charles Bolomey's groundbreaking work on rapid near-field
techniques has helped revolutionize the domain of electromagnetic field measurement. Using the modulated scattering technique, during the 1980s Prof. Bolomey demonstrated that simultaneously fast and accurate near-field measurements were possible
using probe arrays. This greatly reduced the measurement time
compared to the conventional mechanical scan of probes and
is now used worldwide in characterizing intentional or nonintentional radiating systems. He also applied the benefits of probe
arrays to microwave-based imagery for industrial and medical
applications. A pioneer in applying microwave techniques for
tomographic imaging, Prof. Bolomey developed a camera with
more than 1,000 sensors to provide some of the first-ever images
of isolated and perfused organs.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Bolomey is an Emeritus Professor, Paris
Sud University, Paris, France.
