The 2013 Larry D. Welch Award winner for best external publication was the brief electronic systems communications paper titled “Comparison of Predicted and Measured Multipath Impulse Responses,” by IDA researchers Kent Haspert and Michael T. Tuley. The paper revisited and improved upon the traditional evaluation of multipath effects. Haspert and Tuley’s research found that multipath should be treated as a combination of both specular and diffuse effects. The research presented in the original paper helped create a foundation for future research into the implementation of multipath effects in a classified system.
