2023 MSS Fellows Nomination Procedures

Steps to Becoming an MSS Fellow

Nominating a colleague for induction as an MSS Fellow is an important step in raising the visibility of work that furthers the technical knowledge and expertise of our community.  Selection criteria include:

  • Significant individual contributions as an engineer-scientist or technical leader to the military sensing community
  • Evidence of technical accomplishment, i.e. publications, internal company reports, patents, and peer recognition
  • Input from the MSS Fellows Committee, MSS Executive Committee, and the Military Sensing Community

Candidates may come from any military sensing field and may be from academia, government, or industry.  Whatever their careers, candidates must have made an outstanding contribution to the military sensing profession.  This year, the annual Fellow induction process begins in January, with nominations due in May.

  • A candidate is nominated by a colleague in the MSS community or by an MSS specialty group. Fellows nominations must be submitted online at www.MSSconferences.org.
  • The nominator fills out the nomination form with details of the candidate’s qualifications and outstanding technical achievements
  • The nominator obtains and submits the candidate’s resume
  • Five supporters from among the MSS Specialty Group as a whole, MSS Fellows, MSS Executive Committee members, or members of the MSS Program Committees are needed to endorse the nomination and are identified during the nomination process.  The nominator can also serve as a supporter. The nominator should contact each supporter identified above to request a technical reference/letter of recommendation to be submitted directly to the MSS Fellows POC or back to the nominator to upload with the completed packet.
  • Should part of the nomination packet require classification at the collateral level or higher, a classified addendum can be submitted on SIPR or JWICS. Please contact MSS at MSS@anavationllc.com to make special arrangements for submission.
  •     PLEASE NOTE: Only CLASSIFIED addendums (expansive information on candidate’s achievements, letters of reference, etc.) can be included. A full UNCLASSIFIED nomination must be submitted on the website.
