and in the Geodesy and Mapping Department of the
Deutsches Museum in Munich since 1998.
Until Professor Counselman’s patents
expired, virtual-
ly all GPS receivers made in this country were made under
licenses from Western Atlas International Inc., which had ac-
quired the patents in 1984.
Professor Counselman continued to collaborate with the
Air Force through the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory and
Lincoln Laboratory; and, from 1994 to 1998, he consulted for
the U.S. Secretary of Defense as a member of Defense Science
Board Task Forces I & II on GPS.

he ASPRS Outstanding Technical Achievement Award
was first introduced in 2012 This Award consists of a
silver presentation plaque mounted on a wood panel
plus a monetary award of $5,500.
This generous grant is designed to reward the de-
veloper[s] of a specific breakthrough technology which caus-
es quantum advances in the practice of photogrammetry, re-
mote sensing or geographic information systems in the United
In 2011, ASPRS and the ASPRS Foundation received
a very generous individual donation from Honorary Member
and ASPRS Fellow Clifford W. Greve to endow a new Out-
standing Technical Achievement Award. This award is now
fully endowed at the $5,500 level.
ASPRS Fellow Award
Ross Lunetta
Ross Lunetta is a Senior Research Physical Scientist at the
United States Environmental Protection Agency in Research
Triangle Park, NC. He obtained his B.A. (1977) and M.A.
(1979) in Biology from Northern Michigan University. Also,
he completed Post M.A. research in aquatic ecology (1979-81)
fromWayne State University and in remote sensing (1981-83)
from Eastern Michigan University.
For nearly three decades, Lunetta has made significant
contributions to characterize landscape condition and monitor
watershed changes at regional scales using remote sensing.
He has developed methods for monitoring vegetation phenolo-
gy related to landscape dynamics, and to land cover condition
and changes in near real-time using automated approaches
An important thrust of this work has been collaboration with
ASPRS in a number of venues to both communicate the value
of the technology and to reach out to a wide body of users to
illustrate that utility.
Lunetta has been an active member since 1984 He has pro-
vided untiring support of ASPRS activities through a variety of
