US Embassy Islamabad has acknowledged the contributions of a Pakistani award-winning open-source engineer, Ahmad Awais, on Monday for his contribution in terms of code generation to the software for the helicopter Mars 2020 mission, also known as NASA’s Ingenuity Helicopter.
« Pakistani developers are truly making their mark in the world. #DidYouKnow Ahmad Awais (@MrAhmadAwais), a Pakistani award-winning open-source engineer, contributed code to the software for the Mars 2020 helicopter mission, also known as NASA’s Ingenuity Helicopter?, » stated a post on US Embassy Islamabad’s official Twitter account.
