Terry Percival and Stan Skafidas have been been elected Fellows of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE), the largest of Australia's four learned academies.
Dr Percival has worked at NICTA since 2004. He joined the Centre as director of its Sydney Research Laboratory, and earlier this year was appointed director of the NICTA broadband and digital economy business team.
Earlier in his career, Dr Percival worked at the CSIRO where he was part of the team that developed the core technology of Wi-Fi (his then colleague John O'Sullivan has also been elected as an ATSE Fellow).
Professor Skafidas joined NICTA in 2004 as program leader of sensor networks at the Victorian Research Laboratory.
Also elected as a ATSE Fellow was Glenn Wightwick, IBM distinguished engineer, chief technologist at IBM Australia, and director of IBM Research Australia, who is also a member of NICTA's research evaluation board committee.
"This recognition is richly deserved. Terry, Stan and Glenn have demonstrated vision, determination and enthusiasm for innovation in ICT and their efforts are to be applauded," said NICTA CEO Hugh-Durrant Whyte.
In all, 37 people were elected as ATSE Fellows this year.
