The medal is “the Nation’s highest civilian honor, presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other noteworthypublic or private endeavors.”

“Grace Hopper richly deserves this recognition for the role she played in ushering in the digital era,” said Unisys President and CEO Peter Altabef. “Through her work at Unisys predecessor Sperry Corporation and earlier constituent companies, in addition to in her long active and reserve service in the U.S. Navy, Adm. Hopper was consistently at the forefront of innovation in applied IT. She embodies a vision and spirit that inspire and inform our work at Unisys every day.”

(UNIVAC was developed by a predecessor of Sperry Corporation, which merged with Burroughs Corporation in 1986 to create Unisys.) In doing so, she pioneered the use of sharable code libraries, making it easier and faster for software developers to collaborate, and drove development of the first compilers, making the task of programming computers much simpler.
