Gordon Anderson, Technical Group Leader of the Instrument Development Laboratory in the William R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) has been named 2003 Systems Engineer of the Year by the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE). Mr. Anderson received this award for his many contributions to improving systems engineering and implementation, including leading a group of software developers in support of high-throughput proteomics at EMSL. In addition, he was also instrumental in leading development of electronics and data systems for the EMSL's Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance (FTICR) spectrometer; a software analysis package for ion cyclotron resonance; and a small, portable battery-powered proportional counter for gamma and neutron signals. INCOSE is an international, not-for-profit organization that promotes the application of an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. Systems engineering requires an interdisciplinary team effort to define the technical and business needs of customers early in the development cycle, document requirements, and then proceed with design synthesis and system validation.
