Brian Gore receives SAE Award for Research!

Brian Gore and Peter Jarvis of the NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., are recipients of SAE International's Arch T. Colwell Merit Award.They were presented the award during the SAE 2007 World Congress.

This award, established in 1965, annually recognizes the authors of outstanding papers presented at an SAE or SAE section meeting. The late Arch T. Colwell, who first funded this award, served SAE International in many capacities for nearly 50 years, including a term as President in 1941.

The SAE Foundation now funds this award. In addition to supporting the awards, recognition and scholarship programs of SAE International, the SAE Foundation develops and funds programs and incentives that foster student interest in engineering, scientific and technical education.

Gore and Jarvis are recognized for co-authoring the paper, "New Integrated Modelling Capabilities: MIDAS' Recent Behavioural Enhancements" (SAE paper 2005-01-2701).
