Development of the Erbium-Doped Optical Fiber Amplifier +Milestone Plaque will be placed in front of the Southampton University Library, Southampton, Hampshire, UK. This location receives a large amount of foot traffic and is about 100 meters from the building in which the work was done.


Eel River Back-to-Back High Voltage Direct Current Converter Station, 1972 +If successful in receiving this acknowledgment, NB Power would organize a celebration event in conjunction with Engineering Week, which is held annually in February. We would propose an event be held at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, along with representatives from the IEEE, and IEEE NB Section. In addition, we would invite key stakeholders and the media to attend. After the plaque is received, it would be displayed in the main lobby of our Dalhousie Generating Station, where it would be visible to employees and visitors for viewing.
Enrico Fermi's major contribution to semiconductor statistics, Florence, Italy, 1926 +Prof. E. Fermi developed the mentioned theory when he taught at the students of the two-year preliminary course of Engineering of the University of Florence. Since he was teaching at the School of Engineering of the University of Florence when he developed the theory, and because of the paramount importance of Fermi’s Statistics in semiconductors, and hence in electronic engineering, we propose the main hall of the School of Engineering for Plaque placement. Passing through the chosen hall is necessary to go the the President’s Offices, to the thesis discussion room and to the elevators to many of the departments, hence of very high visibility. The plaque will be mounted on the wall next to the Plaque enumerating the Presidents of the School since its foundation.


First 500 MeV proton beam from the worlds largest cyclotron +The plaque will be installed outside the cyclotron main control room near the site dedication plaque. (The first successful beam extraction was manually controlled from the main console in that room.)
First Blind Flight: A Joint IEEE-AIAA Milestone Proposal +This will be a joint designation with the AIAA. The milestone plaque will be installed in the Mitchel Field Flight Safety exhibit of the Cradle of Aviation Museum, 1 Davis Avenue, Garden City, NY 11530. The museum is located on the former site of the Mitchel Field U.S. Army Air Corps Base and the plaque will located just a few hundred feet from where the flight’s takeoff and landing originated.
First Digitally Processed Image from a Spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar +We propose to mount the plaque in the lobby of MDA's headquarters at 13800 Commerce Parkway Richmond, BC V6V 2J3. Although this is not the location where the achievement occurred, it is where all follow on work at MDA in the area of SAR processing and applications has been pursued since the early 1990s.
First Industrial Scale Nuclear Reactor +The plaque will be mounted just outside the entrance to the B reactor.
First Integrated PWM Controller for Switching Power Supplies +The milestone plaque would be installed outside the SC Building that has other TI landmarks installed. The outside location is chosen so that anyone at the building can easily see the milestone and its significance.
First Millimeter-wave Communication Experiments by J.C. Bose, 1894-96 +The Presidency college Calcutta (now Kolkata), India, where he developed,invented tested the Millimeter wave communication system or his residence where he had worked mostly, now converted to BOSE INSTITUTE
First Optical Fiber Laser and Amplifier +The proposed site is in the Southbridge MA Town Common on Main Street directly across from the old American Optical main plant where the work took place. The Common is public land owned by Southbridge. On Jan 23, 2012 the Southbridge Town Council granted permission to place the Milestone plaque in the Common.
First Practical Field Emission Electron Microscope, 1972-1984 +The plaque will be installed outside the main building at the sites where FE technology and electron microscopes were developed. (1) Naka Division, Hitachi High Technologies Corporation (formerly Naka Works, Hitachi Ltd.) and (2) Central Research Laboratory, Hitachi Ltd.
First Practical Photovoltaic Solar Cell +Proposed site of the proposed milestone plaque would be in the Hall of Innovation on the site where the invention occurred at what is now Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, 600 Mountain Ave, Murray Hill, NJ, within the IEEE North Jersey Section.
First RISC Microprocessor +Soda Hall has been the permanent the home for Computer Science at Berkeley since it was completed in 1996. The 1980-82 work for "First RISC Microprocessor" was conducted in several other buildings, before there was a designated building for Computer Science.
First Radio Astronomical Observations Using VLBI, 1967 +The Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory (DRAO) is a National Facility for astronomy operated by the National Research Council Canada. It is operated to support the research of the Canadian astronomy community, mostly consisting of researchers in universities. The plaque will be installed on the base of the DRAO 26-m radiotelescope that was used as the western site of the first successful VLBI radio astronomical observations in April 1967 observations. This location will be readily accessible to the several thousand members of the general public that visit the Observatory site each year. For related background, see
First Real-Time Speech Communication on Packet Networks +MIT Lincoln Laboratory conducted pioneering R&D and experiments in packet speech, collaborating with the other organizations noted above, including USC/ISI, SRI, CHI, BBN, and others. Lincoln was a direct participant in all the milestone packet speech experiments cited above, spanning 1974-1982. In addition, in 1971, Lincoln conducted the earliest packet speech related experiments on the ARPAnet; those experiments showed the feasibility of packet speech transmission; real-time 2-way communication over the ARPAnet between Lincoln and CHI and between Lincoln and USC/ISI followed in 1974.
First Technical Meeting of AIEE 1884 +Franklin Institute, Philadelphia
First generation and experimental proof of electromagnetic waves 1886-1888. +The intended site on the campus of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is the Heinrich-Hertz-Auditorium, where Heinrich Hertz performed his experiments. There is a sculpture of Heinrich Hertz on the site (see supporting material, Fig.1).
First television broadcast in Western Canada +The plaque will be installed near the main gate of the CBC Broadcasting Site on Mount Seymour. CBC Broadcasting Site, Mount Seymour Parkway, North Vancouver, BC. Lat: 49°21′13″N Lon: 122°57′24″W The plaque will be installed on a wall near the main gate. CBC conducts frequent tours for students and the public.  All tours include a stop at this location.
