CSIRO medal winners
Date:10/14/2009

From the behaviour of invasive ants in northern Australia, finding black holes in space, to making better wireless computer networks, CSIRO has recognised the outstanding work of some of its scientists and staff today at a ceremony in Melbourne.

The CSIRO Medals are awarded each year to staff of the CSIRO who have made significant contributions to the organisation.

Awarded since 1985, the CSIRO Medals have been presented to a range of scientists and staff across the organisation.

CSIRO Chief Executive Dr Megan Clark said the awards were an example of the enormous talent and commitment of CSIRO staff.

The winners of the major prize, the Chairman's Medal, was the scientific, commercial and legal teams responsible for the development of fast, indoor wireless computer networks for portable devices which is now used in over 800 million devices around the world and growing.

The research team, with backgrounds mostly unrelated to computing, found a solution to the 'multipath' problem which was a major obstacle to the development of fast, indoor wireless networks and had eluded 22 major international research groups.

"CSIRO's solution to the 'multipath problem' and its subsequent commercialisation ranks as one of the most significant achievements in CSIRO's 82 year history," CSIRO chairman Dr John Stocker said.

"The technology is used in over 800 million devices right now and its use is rapidly expanding."

Parliamentary Secretary for Innovation and Industry Richard Marles congratulated all of today's winners.

"These awards recognise the remarkable achievements of CSIRO scientists and help raise the profile of the important and ground-breaking research being done," Mr Marles said.
