AWARDS COMMITTEE CHAIR
Iryna Borshchova obtained her Ph.D. in the area of vision-based navigation for rotary-wing Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). In September 2019, she was hired by the NRC FRL to conduct research in the area of Detect and Avoid (DAA), a critical area for beyond visual line of sight operations of RPAS. Being a member of RTCA, ASTM and EUROCAE, Dr. Borshchova works proactively towards the challenges that manufacturers and operators need to have addressed, in order to realize the broader economic benefits of RPAS. Besides DAA, her research interests include development of statistical models of Canadian airspaces, discrete-event supervisory control in autonomous systems, tracking and sensor data fusion.
