Recognized By Space Agency For Contributions To Canadian Space
In recognition of his exceptional contribution to the Canadian
Space Program, Dr. Henry Buijs was presented with the prestigious
John H. Chapman Award of Excellence at the Canadian Space Agency's
annual celebration, in the company of representatives from
industry, academia, and government as well as former and current
Dr. Henry Buijs
Born in the Netherlands, Dr. Buijs is one of the original
founders of Bomem in Quebec City, a high-technology,
internationally recognized company now part of the ABB group. As a
scientist, he established Fourier transform spectroscopy as a
powerful technique and a core Canadian expertise used for
monitoring the atmosphere from space. To this day, his motivation
and leadership are a source of inspiration to hundreds of people.
At 72 years of age, Dr. Buijs continues to supervise development
projects as Chief Technology Officer at ABB's Analytical
Measurement business unit.
"Dr. Henry Buijs made direct contributions to several major
space missions that have had and will continue to have a tremendous
impact on the understanding of the Earth's atmosphere," said Steve
MacLean, President of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), during the
Dr. Buijs also contributed, in 1962, to the first balloon-borne
measurement of night time atmospheric airglow. Fifty years later,
CSA's SCISAT-1 is making major contributions to the understanding
of the ozone using the same measurement technique.
Dr. Buijs received the Williams-Wright Award of the Coblentz
Society in 1998 and the Lionel-Boulet Award of the Quebec
Government in 2005.
