george J. anders

steven J. sasson

For contributions to advances in computational methods for the thermal rating
of electric power cables

For designing and building the first
digital still camera

George J. Anders' expertise has contributed toward setting the
standard for rating electric power cables, which has provided significant economic benefits to the power industry. His computational techniques using analytical and finite element methods
enable engineers to accurately rate cable circuits. He also developed optimization techniques for selecting the most economic
conductor sizes, providing accurate calculations to avoid costly
oversizing of buried cables. The software for steady-state and
emergency ratings of underground cables, which he developed,
is used throughout the world and is considered the industry standard for power cable rating calculations. Anders' contributions to
early leak detection methods are also helping to reduce the costs
of detection, location, clean up, and repair related to cable leaks.
An IEEE Fellow, Anders is currently president of Anders Consulting, Ltd., Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada.

Steven J. Sasson's development of the first digital still camera and
contributions to groundbreaking digital technologies have revolutionized photography, making it easier and less expensive to
capture and share photos. His patented work at Kodak during
the 1970s involved using a fast charge-coupled device to capture
images to a digital buffer memory and transfer them to a nonvolatile digital storage medium. Sasson saw the potential of emerging
memory chips and analog-to-digital converters and decided to
store four digital bits per pixel on a cassette tape instead of using
traditional analog video circuits. During the 1980s, he also developed the first megapixel digital camera incorporating discrete cosine transform compression for storing images on memory cards.
A recipient of the 2009 U.S. National Medal of Technology
and Innovation, Sasson is currently president of Steven J. Sasson
Consulting, LLC, Hilton, NY, USA.

IEEE Internet Award

IEEE Richard Harold Kaufmann Award

Sponsored by Nokia Corporation

Sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications Society

Henning schulzrinne

g.s. peter Castle

For formative contributions to the design
and standardization of Internet multimedia protocols and applications

For developments of applied electrostatic
devices and processes in industry, agriculture, and environmental protection

The multimedia-capable Internet that we now take for granted
was made possible by Henning Schulzrinne's fundamental contributions to the development of network protocols, applications,
and algorithms for the effective transport of audio and video signals. He helped migrate the Internet from a medium containing
primarily text and images to one featuring both real-time and ondemand audio/video. Key to the success of the Internet was Schulzrinne's Real-Time Transport Protocol, which became an Internet
full standard in 2004. He also developed the Real-Time Streaming
Protocol to control delivery of audio and video streams, which
is supported by major consumer streaming architectures. And his
Session Information Protocol became the standard for Internet telephony and conducting real-time interactive multimedia sessions.
An IEEE and ACM Fellow, Schulzrinne is a professor with the
Department of Computer Science at Columbia University, New
York, NY, USA and serves as a Technology Advisor to the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) in Washington, DC, USA.

One of the founders of modern applied electrostatics research, G.S.
Peter Castle has developed tools for addressing real-world issues impacting manufacturing, agriculture, and the environment. His work
on electrostatic precipitators including two-stage precipitation and
space charge suppression has improved air-cleaning applications.
He also developed processes for electrostatic liquid painting and
powder coating, which have provided more cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions compared to conventional industrial
painting systems. Castle's induction charging concept has enhanced
liquid deposition of pesticides on leaves, reducing the amount of
chemicals that need to be sprayed for improved crop protection. His
research concerning contact charging for electrostatic separation of
plastics is benefitting the recycling industry.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Castle is a Professor Emeritus and adjunct
research professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Western Ontario, London,
Ontario, Canada.
