The proposal on the MOSA device looks to be sound and no issues appear to become a point of controversy. Could i suggest the remainder of the submission be completed please, addressing the key points, and then would be happy to propose this Milestone for elevation:

  • 1. Milestone costs disbursement;
  • 2. Responsibility around the award ceremony organsiation;
  • 3. If there is any specific monitoring planned for the proposed Milestone plaque by an IEEE entity;
  • 4. A letter from the owner authorising permission to place the Milestone plaque at the proposed location; and
  • 5. Advice from the Tokyo Section Chair / Council (whichever is approriate here) supporting the Milestone proposal.

Thanks,

David E. Burger, IEEE History Committee, Vice-Chair 2013   (k3hz@ieee.org)

18 April 2013 Dear Mr. David E. Burger

We are sorry for our late reply. In reply to your questions on Milestone review of 27 March 2013. Please find the following our answers.

	1. Milestone costs disbursement: The proposer could bear the cost of the dedication ceremony in Japan, if the costing details are clarified. We learned Mr. Robert Colburm is in the know of such matter. Could you please help us get such costing info.
	2. Responsibility around the award ceremony organsiation: It rests IEEE Tokyo Section.
	3. If there is any specific monitoring planned for the proposed Milestone plaque by an IEEE entity: Yes, planned at IEEE Tokyo Section.
	4. A letter from the owner authorising permission to place the Milestone plaque at the proposed location: Although we applied the data (including the Letter of Site Owner) in our inputting for Milestone Application, we understood that there was some system trouble due to the program updating during early February 2013 and as a result, our data of Letter of Site Owner seemed lost. We attach herewith the requested application data (the Letter of Site Owner).
	5. Advice from the Tokyo Section Chair / Council (whichever is approriate here) supporting the Milestone proposal: By the same reason stated above, the Letter of Tokyo Section Chair was lost from the application data. We attach herewith the same as well as References and Supporting Materials (included in the application data) for your further action.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr. Burger,

We are pleased to learn from the Status Report that our proposal is now moved on the list of "B.3. Proposals Approved by Advocates and Awaiting Finalized Citations Approval from Proposers" from the previous "B.2.Proposals Submitted Awaiting Advocate Approval.

We understand the Milestone Proposal will go through the below review on documentation and citation.

Quote: 3. Review of the Proposal: Within three months of receipt of the milestone proposal the advocate shall complete an initial evaluation of the detailed documentation and present a recommendation whether to accept or reject the proposed milestone - including a draft of the final wording of the citation - to the IEEE History Committee for review and approval. This review process may require the submission of additional documentation that may extend the period for the review of the proposed milestone. The advocate shall coordinate the preparation of a draft citation with the proposers prior to the submission of a recommendation to the IEEE History Committee.

We appreciate your kind co-operation and advice on the above review.

I applaud the development of the proposal for the technology to be recognized by this sought designation as an IEEE milestone. However, I would like to see the proposal subjected to copy editing to make the narrative easier to read. At this time, I believe that many well-informed electrical engineers would have difficulty following the developments that are at the heart of the technology/engineering represented by this proposed IEEE milestone.

On the point you raised on as " At this time, I believe that many well-informed electrical engineers would have difficulty following the developments...", we would like to give more clear illustration of what were the challenges and concerns back then before the introduction of the proposed work. Attached please find the supplemental information as some amendments to "What is the historical significance of the work (its technological, scientific, or social importance)?". The amendments are made to initial 3 paragraphs added and some line in the 4th paragraph.

We thank you for your kind attention.
