2014 Kershner Award

Presented to: Dr. Charles Volk

Citation: For successfully fielding four generations of navigation systems and his pioneering work in the development of nuclear magnetic resonance gyroscopes; including the development of the ring laser gyro and the zero-lock gyro, the development of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) accelerometers used in inertial measurement units, and precision gyros that enhances navigation performance in GPS-challenged environments.
