The Naval Research (ONR) recognized 25 awardees of the 2019 Young Investigator Program (YIP), which included Daniel Zitterbart, who was recognized for the Development of Next Generation Automatic Surface Whale Detection System for Marine Mammal Mitigation and Distribution Estimation. The Young Investigator Program was established in 1985, and is one of the nation’s oldest and most selective basic research early career awards in science and technology. Its purpose is to fund tenure-track academic researchers, or equivalent, whose scientific pursuits show outstanding promise for supporting the Department of Defense, while also promoting their professional development. Congratulations Dan!
