AIM, the industry association and worldwide authority on bar code, RFID, RTLS and mobile computing, announced the recipients of the 2013 AIM Industry Awards during a special ceremony at their 40th Anniversary Summit in Orlando, FL last week.

Sarah Howland, Editor-in-Chief of Field Technologies Magazine/Field Technologies Online, was awarded the Bert Moore Excellence in Journalism Award. The award recognizes a member of the media whose work exemplifies the qualities of honest, educational and unbiased reporting in the automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) industry.

The Don Percival Award, co-sponsored by AIM and SCAN – The Data Capture Report, was presented this year to Jay Crowley, Senior Advisor with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), honors outstanding contributions to the application of AIDC technologies in the user community.

Mr. Crowley, who has more than 20 years with the FDA, was a major force behind the FDA’s Unique Device Identification (UDI) System Final Rule, which just became law in late September 2013, and is likely to have a major impact on medical device standardization in the U.S. and internationally.

A collaborative effort to further the growth of the AIDC industry in academia is the basis for the Ted Williams Award, which was given to Gisele Bennett, PhD of the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). Dr. Bennett is Director of the Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory as well as a highly published author and recognized expert in radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies.

Adam Crossno, CEO and Founder of OnAsset Intelligence, Inc., was named the recipient of the Allan Gilligan Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the development of AIDC applications in materials handling and logistics in the supply chain. Mr. Crossno is the inventor of FlightSafe, the first tracking device approved by the FAA to safely allow for real-time monitoring and management of assets during flight. Today, this technology is being used by more than 25 domestic and international airlines to safely transport cargo to over 500 worldwide destinations.

The Richard R. Dilling Award is considered to be the highest award given in the AIDC industry in recognition of lifetime achievements that have furthered industry growth through significant applications and new technological developments. The 2013 recipient, Brian Marcel of the IBCS Group in the United Kingdom, has been actively involved in AIDC market development in Europe for more than 35 years.

"Without the efforts of these individuals,” said Chuck Evanhoe, Chairman of AIM, Inc., "our industry would not be as strong and successful as it is today – or will be tomorrow. Everyone involved in the AIDC industry is indebted to their commitment to our profession and we applaud their selection.”
