Richard and Nancy Gowen Enable Completion of IEEE History Center’s “Founders of GPS” Collection

With its ability to detect a person or object’s exact position anywhere on the earth at any time, the Global Positioning System (GPS) has had groundbreaking implications for a world that relies on navigation, human and asset tracking, and much more. Richard (Dick) and Nancy Gowen’s generous gift to the IEEE History Center Fund of the IEEE Foundation, enabled oral histories from three of the four original founders of GPS technology to be added to the History Center’s “GPS Collection,” on its Engineering and technology History Wiki which now contains the oral histories from all four fathers of GPS.


IEEE Programs Benefit from Donations to IEEE Foundation COVID-19 Fund

The global COVID-19 pandemic presents unique challenges and IEEE members and IEEE programs have adapted to address them. As the world works to find its way through this crisis, the members of the IEEE community have stepped up - as you always do.

To support the IEEE response, the IEEE Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund was established. Through your philanthropic investments, the Fund will ensure that support is available for programs and initiatives affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
