The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has recognized a technological invention for predicting new viruses along with other publications and research.
Andrew Feldman and Jeffrey Lin of the Research and Exploratory Development Department won the Invention of the Year for 2013 award for their method of developing vaccines for a short period and forecasting the evolution of virus, APL said Thursday.
“We honor 410 staff [members] who were named in 96 nominated entries for 15 technical achievement awards,” said Jerry Krill, APL assistant director for science and technology.
Mason Baron, Gregory Barr and James Cochran received the Government Purpose Innovation Award for developing aerial surveillance and reconnaissance geo-registration algorithms without a GPS.
Johns Hopkins APL awarded the Ignition Grant project for 2013 to Robert Osiander, Kim Griffin, Bob Berardino and Colin Taylor for creating do-it-yourself methods and a technological learning culture.
The Mission Accomplishment Awards has been added in 2014 to recognize projects for the APL’s sponsors and the awards were given to defense and intelligence operations programs.
