This is one the most prestigious
senior medal given once every three years at the General Assembly of URSI.
URSI is an intentional organization with worldwide membership. All the
members are elected by their national committees. The citation reads, "For
fundamental contribution to reflector antenna design and practice,
near-field measurements and diagnostic techniques, handheld antennas and
human interactions, genetic algorithms in electromagnetics, and the spectral
theory of diffraction". The 2005 URSI General Assembly was held in New
Delhi, India. India’s president, Dr. Abdul Kalam, attended the opening
ceremony and presentation of awards. This award
consists of a Gold Medal and a Recognition Certificate.
