The SAVE Lifetime Innovation Award is presented to an individual whose innovations and professional dedication in the field of shock and vibration have significantly improved the state of the art or state of practice. Additionally, the innovations should have an impact that lasts for several years or decades after inception and/or serve as the primary first step toward additional innovations in a certain field.

“Bruce is one of the most creative engineers on the Meggitt team, and we are very proud of his accomplishments and achievements over a very long career with the company,” said Mel Hilderbrand, Sr. VP of Engineering with Meggitt Sensing Systems. “He has made truly significant contributions, not only to the Meggitt technology base but to the advancement of our industry as a whole.”

The award committee cited Wilners development of the Endevco model 7270A accelerometer as a ground-breaking innovation representing the ‘gold standard’ for high-quality measurements in severe shock environments. The committee also recognized the model 7270A as the basis for many advancements and new technologies in accelerometer design and concepts.

In 1961 Wilner joined Endevco, which was based in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., and acquired by Meggitt PLC in 1992. He currently works at the Meggitt Sensing Systems MEMS facility in Sunnyvale, Calif. Over his 52-year career with the company, he has been awarded 25 patents, the majority of which relate to MEMS parts that are still in production today. Among his notable designs are the worlds first and (still) only 200,000g accelerometer (1986); the worlds only optimally damped 2,000g piezoresistive accelerometer (2007); and the worlds smallest triaxial piezoresistive accelerometer (2008). He also designed several piezoresistive pressure sensors.
