Terry Moore, director of the Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) at the University of Nottingham, will receive the J. E. D. Williams Medal on July 19 for his significant and varied contributions to the Royal Institute of Navigation (UK), in particular his leading role in staging its major conferences.

The award is the latest in a string of RIN honors. In 2013, Professor Moore received the Harold Spencer-Jones Gold Medal — the highest honor the RIN bestows — for outstanding contributions to navigation. He was also one of the youngest-ever recipients of the highly esteemed award.

Moore has also won the RIN’s Richey Medal for best paper to be published each year in the Journal of Navigation in 1999 and again in 2008.

His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who is patron of the Royal Institute of Navigation, will present the award to Professor Moore at the RIN Annual General Meeting at the Royal Geographical Society in London. Moore is currently vice-president of the institute.

In 2013, Professor Moore was awarded a fellowship of the U.S. Institute of Navigation (ION) for his outstanding leadership of the navigation community, the establishment of GRACE (GNSS Research and Applications Centre of Excellence), the establishment of NGI, and sustained contributions to the advancement of navigation and GNSS.  He was only the third Briton to receive an ION fellowship.
