The initialtechnology was invented and patented byDavid PackhamandLen Gibson, who worked withJohn Petersenonprototype development, field trials, and applications engineering.Dr. Martin Colewas responsible for the successfulcommercial development and many further patented technical developments. The VESDA technology and its pre-eminent role in the introduction of aspirated smoke detection (ASD) internationally has led to a major global impacton public safety.The recipients of the 2017 Philip J.
