A satellite navigation expert at The University of Nottingham has now received more top medals from the Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN), in its near 70-year history, than anyone else. Professor Terry Moore receives his latest accolade, the J E D Williams Medal, for his significant and varied contributions to the RIN, in particular his leading role in staging its major conferences. His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who is patron of the Royal Institute of Navigation, presented the award to Professor Moore at the RIN Annual General Meeting on July 19 at the Royal Geographical Society in London. “I am really surprised and delighted,” said Professor Moore, Director of the University’s Nottingham Geospatial Institute, “I have been proud to serve the RIN for many years, and it is a great honour for my contributions to be recognised in this way.”
