Low-Key Australian Techie Scores Queen’s Birthday Gong
ADELAIDE: Technology – as usual – took pretty much a back seat in yesterday’s Order of Australia awards, but one recipient with sterling credentials did make the list.
Neil Lyall Bryans – and don’t be surprised if you haven’t heard of him – has been honoured as a member of the Order of Australia for significant service to science and defence capability technology through radar and telecommunications research.
Bryans is a board member and consultant to Supashock, a company that makes advanced motion technology for military vehicles, among other forms of transport.
Bryans has also been associated with the Defence Systems Institute and the Institute of Telecommunications Research and has also been director of the South Australia University’s counter terrorism and security technology centre. – CC
