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.


Gapless Metal Oxide Surge Arrester (MOSA) for electric power systems,1975 +The MOSA had been developed at Meiden R&D Center since 1970s. Therefore, the intended site has a direct connection.
Grumman Lunar Module +Proposed site of the proposed milestone plaque would be in Northrop Grumman Aerospace System, Battle Management and Engagement System’s Headquarters, Building 25, 600 Grumman Road West, Bethpage, NY 11714, where some of the Grumman Lunar Module engineering was executed. Building 25 is next to the original Grumman building 5 where the Grumman Lunar Module was built and tested.


Harvard Mark 1 Computer, 1944 - 1959 +The Mark I was eventually disassembled, although portions of it remain at Harvard in the Science Center. It is part of the Harvard Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments. The milestone plaque will be mounted adjacent the remaining apparatus on display.
High Temperature Superconductivity +The YBCO compound was first synthesized and tested for superconductivity in this building.
High-Temperature Superconductivity +The plaque will be installed in the park-like are of the IBM Research Laboratory. It will be publicly visible. IBM Research GmbH IBM Research - Zurich Säumerstrasse 4 CH-8803 Rüschlikon Switzerland Lat 47.309272 Lon 8.545346
Hollow dielectric beam waveguide of sub-millimeter wavelength range, 1966 +Entrance to the Institute of Radio-Physics and Electronics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (IRE NASU), vul. Proskury 12, Kharkiv 61085, Ukraine. Hollow dielectric beam waveguide technology of the millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength range was conceived in 1963, developed since 1964, and demonstrated at that site in 1966. This is a corporate building. There are no historical markers at the site.


IEEE Milestone for the Demonstration of the First Working Laser in Malibu, CA +Proposed site would be the building where the invention occurred at the Hughes Research Lab in Malibu, California.
Improvements in and relating to Sound-transmission, Sound-recording and Sound-reproduction systems by Alan Dower Blumlein +Abbey Road Studios are working studios having been established in 1931. Abbey Road was the site of where on January 19th 1934, Alan Blumlein used his Stereo recording equipment to record Sir Thomas Beecham conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra playing Mozart's Jupiter Symphony. There is one existing plaque on the front of Abbey Road which is dedicated to Sir Edward Elgar who officially opened the Abbey Road Studios on November 12th 1931
Interactive Video Games +The achivement was developed in a small room opposite the 5th floor elevator at the intended site in 1967 and 1968. The intended site was formerly the historic Jackson Mills building. In 1826, Charles C. Haven constructed Indian Head Co. mill to manufacture woolen goods. In June 1830, Indian Head Co. was incorporated under the new Jackson Co. The Jackson Co. and its 1,200 operatives merged with Nashua Manufacturing Co. in 1916 before being sold to Textron, Inc. in 1945. The Jackson Co. was the last mill to close in December 1951. In 1952, the buildings became home to Sanders Associates, and later to BAE Systems.
International Standardization of G3 Facsimile in 1980 +The plates will be installed in buildings of the NTT Cyber Communications Laboratory Group and KDDI R&D Laboratories. These were the places where the G3 type facsimile research and development was performed. Moreover, those places are where the MR method was invented.

It has a direct lineage to the work done by Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs and the team that worked on the Apple I. It is a location that is seen by and visited by thousands of visitors, vendors and Apple employees on a daily basis.
Introduction of the Apple II Computer: 1977-1978 +The current headquarters of Apple, Inc., is a high profile location in Silicon Valley. It has a direct lineage to the work done by Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs and the Apple team that worked on the Apple II. It is a location that is seen by and visited by thousands of visitors, vendors and Apple employees on a daily basis.
