The Henri Busignies Memorial Award

Henri Busignies, an electronics and communications expert, was responsible for over 140 inventions in aerial navigation and direction finding to guide aircraft. One of his inventions, the “Huff-Duff” high-frequency direction finder, is credited with helping to thwart German submarine wolfpacks during WWII. The award, established in 1981, primarily recognizes achievements in the field of communications equipment and is granted to any person who has contributed substantially to the advancement of electronics for the benefit of humanity.
