Jerry Krill, science and technology assistant director at the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, will be inducted into the Innovation Hall of Fame at the University of Maryland’s A. James Clark School of Engineering on Nov. 12.

The systems engineer will be recognized for helping lead efforts to develop the Cooperative Engagement Capability network, which is designed to show synthesized images of air space for U.S. Navy fleets, APL said Thursday.

“Many made vital contributions in making this technology work, and I am proud to have been associated with the years of work and sacrifice that so many men and women have put into this major program,“ Krill said.

More than 200 APL staff members and thousands of other Navy and contractor personnel worked on the CEC program, he added.

“We are extremely proud of Jerry and his groundbreaking work on CEC in support of the U.S. Navy and our nation“™s security,“ said Ralph Semmel, APL director.

Krill started to work on the CEC in 1974 and continued developing the project while he pursued a doctorate degree in electrical engineering at UMD’s Clark School.

He was also in charge of accelerating technical procedures in order to integrate the system onto ships.
