Senior Director, Business Development and Head of Autonomous Robotics, Drones and Intelligent Machines, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Dev Singh is responsible for leading and managing the robotics and intelligent machines within Qualcomm Technologies’ IoT business unit.

As robotics, drone, and intelligent machine lead, Dev has overseen countless launches of world-changing, next-generation technology, including the Qualcomm Flight Platform, which powered the Mars Perseverance rover and the Ingenuity helicopter on the first-ever Mars flight.

While the platform was not originally developed for space travel, it had the high power and unique features that NASA/JPL required, including powerful autonomous operation features, making it the best choice to tackle challenges of this historic flight. 

I work for an agency, can I nominate a client?

Of course!

Can I nominate multiple people/projects from the same business?

Yes, providing each nomination is unique this is fine. What we do not allow is duplicate nominations (same name, same reasoning multiple times) – this will not give you more chance at being shortlisted and may results in the nomination being disqualified.

Is there a deadline for nomination?

Yes, nominations will close at midnight on June 30, 2023. There is no opportunity for extension.
