2020 Allen V. Astin Measurement Science Award

AWARD CITATION

The team is recognized for pioneering advances in trusted spectrum testing, modeling, and analysis through the development of new metrology, scientifically rigorous test plans and methodologies, enabling access to key test facilities as well as commercial and federal equipment and expertise to benefit the U.S. communications industry and federal operators. Since 2015, the NASCTN team has undertaken spectrum sharing projects that are contentious and so challenging that no one federal agency had either the expertise or resources do it alone. The team established a transparent, inclusive process which also gathered public comments on proposed test campaigns, ensuring NASCTN tests and data are trusted by both federal and commercial entities.
