Hannah Lehman, a doctoral student in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been named a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Intelligent Systems Technical Committee (ISTC). The committee is a group within AIAA that addresses the application of intelligent system (IS) technologies and methods to aerospace systems, the verification and validation of these systems, and the education of the institute’s membership in the use of IS technologies in aerospace and other technical disciplines. Lehman was inducted for her technical experience in IS and involvement with the institute. She was previously a member of the AIAA Software Technical Committee.  

Lehman’s undergraduate research experience and doctoral research aligns with the ISTC’s activities. She is the recipient of the AIAA Foundation Cary Spitzer Digital Avionics Scholarship for her research contributions in reinforcement learning for the intelligent control of unmanned air systems, and a co-inventor with Collins Aerospace on two patents for IS applied to airplane ground operations at airports. Lehman researched IS for the 2019 National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates program, and for a 2020 summer internship with Sandia National Laboratories. Her doctoral dissertation is sponsored by Sandia National Laboratories on the project “Tightly Integrated Navigation and Guidance for Multiple Autonomous Agents.” 

Lehman earned her bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering summa cum laude in 2020 from Texas A&M as a University Scholar, a member of Engineering Honors and a 2019 Gathright Phi Kappa Phi Outstanding Junior in the College of Engineering. As a first-year graduate student Lehman was awarded the College of Engineering’s Graduate Merit Doctoral Fellowship for 2020-23. She has been conducting research since her sophomore year in the Vehicle Systems & Control Laboratory with her research advisor and chair of dissertation committee, Dr. John Valasek.
