For over fifty years, Bernard M. Gordon and the teams of engineers he has led have conceived, invented, and developed myriad pioneering high-technology devices and equipment contributing to major advances in the fields of industrial instrumentation, medical imaging, computer systems, aerospace telemetry, and communications. Founder and Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Analogic Corporation, Bernard Gordon is often called the “father” of modern analog-to-digital conversion for his many contributions to the technologies that help enrich our lives. Presently, Chairman of NeuroLogica Corporation, involved in advanced brain imaging, he remains as active, entrepreneurial innovator.
Awarded the National Medal of Technology by President Reagan in 1986, and elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1991, Gordon has been honored by the Engineering Societies of New England, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, the Franklin Institute, the Museum of Science, and Eta Kappa Nu among others.
From his earliest contributions to the development of UNIVAC – the world’s first commercial digital computer – and to the first alphanumeric dot matrix display, to scanning devices that would become the central core of modern medical imaging and counter-terrorism technology, Gordon has represented the key creative and essential role of the engineer in the development of new technology.
His concern for the education of engineering leaders led to the establishment of the Gordon Institute, now part of Tufts University, the Professorships at MIT, and the Center for Systems Leadership Engineering at the Technion. He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from MIT and several honorary doctorate degrees in engineering and science.
