The NASPI Awards were created to recognize some of the individuals and organizations whose work has advanced the deployment and value realization of synchrophasor technology. NASPI says of Bob, "[he] ...has led the DNMTT survey team in attempting to determine current synchrophasor communications network characteristics and evolving needs, and leading inquiry into how information technology advances can be applied to benefit synchrophasor data networks and analysis."
