The Colwell Merit Award, established in 1965, annually recognizes the authors of outstanding papers presented at an SAE conference or SAE section meeting. The late Arch T. Colwell, who first funded this award, served SAE International in many capacities for nearly 50 years, including a term as President in 1941.

This award is funded through the SAE Foundation. In addition to supporting the awards, recognition and scholarship programs of SAE International, the SAE Foundation develops and funds programs and incentives that foster student interest in engineering, scientific and technical education.

The following recipients are recognized for co-authoring, "Arc Fault Detection through Model Reference Estimation" (SAE paper #2006-01-3090). The paper presents an alternative approach to arc detection in arc fault circuit breakers.

Jan B. Beck Beck is a lead research scientist at X-L Synergy. For the past four years, he has led the company's research and development of arc fault technologies for the residential and aviation markets.

Beck earned his bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees from the University of Texas at El Paso in physics, computer science and computer engineering, respectively. He resides in El Paso.

David C. Nemir Nemir is President of X-L Synergy, which he founded in 1996. His work focuses on electrical fault detection and management. Previously, he was a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Texas at El Paso.

Nemir holds 12 U.S. patents, primarily in the areas of electrical fault detection and interruption devices. He is a founding member of the Underwriters Laboratories STP-943 committee, which oversees and revises the standards for ground fault interrupt devices, and a member of the UL STP-1699 committee on arc fault interruption devices. He is a registered professional engineer.

Nemir holds his bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Texas, Gannon University and Purdue University, respectively. He also received a master's in business administration from the University of Texas at El Paso. He resides in El Paso.
