The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IIEST) recognized the technical achievements of its members and supporters at annual membership meeting and awards luncheon during ESTECH 2010, the 56th Annual Technical Meeting and Exposition of IEST.
This year, IEST selected two members to become Fellows of IEST: Vesta I. Bateman and Edward B. Davis. Vesta Bateman received this honor for her substantial contributions, as an outstanding mechanical engineer and international expert, to instrumentation, measurement, analysis, and laboratory simulation of the pyroshock environment and assessment of its effects on materiel. Edward Davis was named an IEST Fellow for his innovative contributions to the advancement of contamination control technology in the field of cleanroom garments, and for his long-standing support of IEST.
IEST President Michael Rataj selected Ed Pennell to receive the President's Award. Pennell was honored for his steadfast support and generous, ongoing commitment of resources toward ARAMARK's participation in an array of IEST activities, including Working Groups, meetings and education, and the Executive Board.
The Al Lieberman Mentoring Award, established in memory of IEST Fellow Al Lieberman, was presented to Fredric Fey for his exemplification of everything Al Lieberman stood for in mentoring newcomers into the field and his generous devotion of time to help people improve and advance.
In the industries related to contamination control, two awards were given. The Robert L. Mielke Contamination Control Award was presented to David Chandler for his exceptional leadership and outstanding contributions as Chair of WG-CC014, Calibrating Particle Counters, and his professionalism, dedication, hard work, and innovative abilities. Chris Muller received the Willis J. Whitfield Award for his insightful published contributions on airborne molecular contamination (AMC) control, including a paper that received a Maurice Simpson Technical Award in 2008.
IEST presented the inaugural Exceptional Woman Contributor Award to two members. In the Design, Test, and Evaluation/Product Reliability division, the award went to IEST Fellow Milena Krasich, for her outstanding contributions to the field of reliability and her services to IEST in her roles as Journal of the IEST adviser and author, as an instructor, as a Working Group Chair, and as President Emeritus. In the Contamination Control division, IEST Fellow Anne Marie Dixon received the award for her dedication to IEST as a veteran expert instructor, as a Working Group Chair, and as President Emeritus; and to the field of contamination control, particularly her service to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee (TC) 209.
For her long-time generous and unwavering support of IEST through the pages of TEST Engineering & Management magazine, a Special Recognition Award was given to TEST editor and publisher Eve Mattingley-Hannigan, along with a lifetime membership.
In the industries related to design, test, and evaluation/product reliability, two awards were given. The Edward A. Szymkowiak Award was presented to Kenneth Thompson for his technical expertise in environmental testing and invaluable leadership in the ongoing efforts to revise the internationally recognized MIL-STD-810, particularly his considerable contributions in overseeing the development of MIL-STD-810G. Pantelis Vassiliou received the Reliability Test and Evaluation Award for his vision and outstanding contributions to the reliability and test communities in driving the development of a reliability analysis tool set that comprehensively integrates the reliability sciences with accelerated test technology.
This year, papers in the Contamination Control division and Design, Test, and Evaluation/Product Reliability division received the Maurice Simpson Technical Editors Award. John Weaver, Mark Voorhis, and Ron Reifenberger received this award for their paper, "Nanotechnology Room Design: The Performance and Characterization of the Kevin G. Hall High-Accuracy Laboratory." Yuxun Zhou, Gustavo Plaza, Abhijit Dasgupta, and Michael Osterman received this award for their paper, "Vibration Durability of Sn3.0Ag0.5Cu (SAC305) Solder Interconnects: Harmonic and Random Excitation." Richard Heine and Donald Barker received this award for their paper, "Acceleration-Based Remaining Life Prognostics for Terrain-Loaded Components on an Army Ground Vehicle System." All three papers were published in the 2009 Journal of the IEST.
The John Martin Outstanding New Member Award went to Lori Uram for her commitment in becoming involved early in her membership as Vice Chair of WG-CC003 and participating in other Working Groups, and her high potential to continue contributing in technical and leadership roles.
IEST congratulates all of the award winners. The 57th Annual Technical Meeting and Exposition of IEST will be held May 2-5, 2011 at the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg in northwest suburban Chicago. More information about IEST can be found at www.iest.org, or by calling (847) 981-0100.
Founded in 1953, IEST is an international not-for-profit technical society of engineers, scientists, and educators that serves its members and the industries they represent (simulating, testing, controlling, and teaching the environments of earth and space) through education and the development of recommended practices and standards.
IEST is an ANSI-accredited standards-developing organization; Secretariat of ISO/TC 209 Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments; and a founding member of the ANSI-accredited US TAG to ISO/TC 229 Nanotechnologies.
