The IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) is a society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) that focuses on the advancement of integrated electronic systems and large-scale integrated interoperable systems.
The AESS is the only professional society dealing with total integrated electronic systems and the enabling technologies. AESS pioneered large-scale integrated interoperable systems.
AESS annually sponsors numerous international conferences that focus on its field of interest, including the IEEE Aerospace Conference, IEEE Radar Conference, and the National Aerospace & Electronics Conference (NAECON). The society also operates more than 60 chapters around the world.
The IEEE Warren D. White Award for Excellence in Radar Engineering is an award presented annually for outstanding achievements due to a major technical advance (or series of advances) in the art of radar engineering. This award is a panel award is presented by the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society. It is presented annually to a recognize the contributions of an individual radar engineer. The significance and nature of these contributions are expected to be publicly well known to the radar community at large, as evidenced by technical papers, inventions, presentations, or products.
The award was established in 1999 by Dana White Starr and Warren H. White to memorialize their father. The actual award is a plaque and honorarium.
