The Ferguson award is given for outstanding achievement in the practical application of systems engineering principles. For selection, systems engineering process or concept contributions should demonstrate how they helped achieve significant cost savings, increased mission capabilities and substantially increased performance.

"The F-35 CNI system's ability to reliably and efficiently deliver so much capability is a testament to that effort."

The award was established in 2003 to honor the memory of U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas R. Ferguson Jr. whose leadership embodied the highest ideals in defense systems development and deployment.
