LORD Corp. recently announced it has presented Mark Jolly, Ph.D., senior manager of Mechanical and Sensing Research and Development, with the 2014 Donald M. Alstadt Technology Innovation Award. The award reportedly recognizes LORD employees for innovative technological achievements, as well as exceptional leadership and critical contributions to the company’s success in collaborating with customers to solve technical challenges.

Jolly was reportedly honored for his invention of omni-directional active vibration control for the aerospace and defense industry. This technology reduces vibration and weight on helicopters, thus increasing fuel economy and flying times, and enabling additional payload for the company’s helicopter OEM customers.

“We congratulate Mark for his worthy accomplishments,” said Lane Miller, vice president of Research and Technology. “Alstadt award recipients demonstrate dedication and leadership. Innovations like this one deliver exceptional value for our customers and strengthen our position in the global marketplace.”
