FPA Awards to Stacey, Lee, Garnier and Latkowski.

Fusion Power Associates Board of Directors has announced the recipients of its Distinguished Career, Leadership, and Excellence in Fusion Engineering Awards.

Distinguished Career Award

Weston M. Stacey, Jr., Callaway Regent's Professor of Nuclear Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, has been chosen by Fusion Power Associates (FPA) Board of Directors to receive the 2009 FPA Distinguished Career Award.

In selecting Prof. Stacey, the FPA Board recognizes his decades of outstanding career contributions to fusion research and development, including his pioneering contributions to power-producing fusion reactor designs, to the INTOR design which was a forerunner for ITER, and to conceptual designs of fusion-fission systems.

FPA Distinguished Career Awards have been given annually since 1987 to individuals who have made distinguished lifelong career contributions to fusion development.

Leadership Award

Dr. G. S. Lee, President of the Korean National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI) and former Director-General of the ITER Korean Domestic Agency, has been chosen to receive the 2009 FPA Leadership Award.

In selecting Dr. Lee, the FPA Board recognizes the leadership he has provided to the KSTAR tokamak project, to Korean participation in the ITER project, and his leadership of the International Fusion Research Council (IFRC).

FPA Leadership Awards have been given annually since 1980 to individuals who have shown outstanding leadership qualities in accelerating the development of fusion.

Excellence in Fusion Engineering Award

Darren Gamier of Columbia University and Jeff Latkowski of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have been chosen to receive 2009 FPA Excellence in Fusion Engineering Awards.

In selecting Dr. Gamier, the FPA Board notes the contributions and leadership he has provided for the design, fabrication and operation of the Levitated Dipole Experiment (a joint Columbia-MIT project located at MIT) and his contributions to the diagnostics and control systems for that experiment.

In selecting Dr. Latkowski, the FPA Board notes the contributions and leadership he has provided for the LIFE fusion-fission project, the NIF Final Safety Analysis, and to LLNL contributions to the non-laser portions of the national High Average Power Laser (HAPL) program.

FPA Excellence in Fusion Engineering Awards, established in memory of MIT professor David J. Rose, have been given annually since 1987 to recognize individuals in the relatively early part of their careers who have shown both technical accomplishment and potential to become exceptionally influential leaders in the fusion field.

The Awards will be presented at Fusion Power Associates Thirty-year Anniversary Annual Meeting and Symposium, December 2-3, in Washington, DC
