SRI International is an independent, nonprofit research institute conducting contract research and development for government agencies, commercial businesses, foundations, and other organizations. SRI also brings its innovations to the marketplace by licensing its technologies and creating new ventures.

The Weldon B. Gibson Achievement Award, established in honor of Senior Director Emeritus Dr. Weldon B. (Hoot) Gibson, recognizes outstanding contributions, by an SRI employee, that have had a noteworthy impact on the standard of living and on the peace and prosperity of society, and have added special luster to the reputation of SRI.

Phil Green 2003

Phil Green's contributions to the fields of ultrasonic imaging and minimally invasive "robotic" surgery have had tremendous impact on the practice of medicine.

Over a 25-year period, Green led more than 30 inventions that made ultrasound a usable medical diagnostic tool; it is now a primary method of imaging the human body. In the early 1980s, Green had an insight that would prove to revolutionize minimally invasive surgery: a robotic system, controlled remotely by the surgeon, that gives the full sensory experience of conventional hands-on "open" surgery.

Intuitive Surgical, an SRI spin-off company, developed and is commercializing the da Vinci™ Surgical System. Today, the company is the recognized leader in operative surgical robotics.
