2020 Bronze Medal Award


Mr. Gordon is recognized for the development of the Pixel Probe Coordinate Measurement System (PiCMS) which has enabled unprecedented high frequency antenna alignment accuracy, advanced the state-of-the-art in antenna alignment, and advanced laser tracker and spatial metrology.  The PiCMS is a tool using a specially developed compact camera system, motion stage, and calibration process that works in conjunction with commercially available laser trackers and allows the laser tracker to make a whole host of new non-contact measurements it could not perform otherwise.
