Systems Engineer at Aflare Systems Inc., Toronto.

As a Systems Engineer at Aflare Systems Inc., I am a part of the design and development team for BlueShift and SCRAM projects, products being built by Aflare Systems for space communications leveraging current technology trends such as software defined systems. I am involved in the end to end development cycle at Aflare Systems and love the opportunity to continuously improve my knowledgebase and experience with a team that shares a passion for space technology.

“Aflare Systems Inc. is a boutique engineering company originally established in 2005 to offer software consulting services. Since 2010 the company business scope expanded to provide full design engineering services in aerospace and medical devices industries. Initial focus on building intelligent systems and customized engineering services was expanded to include also product development in control, communication and RF technologies as part of Aflare’s offering. Today, Aflare is focusing on providing best value at the leading edge of development to its clients such Brican Flight Systems, MDA and Canadian Space Agency while creating technologies of tomorrow.”

The thrill of problem solving! Building new products using research & technical skills to integrate different components into a full-fledged system. Research involved in the development a new product along with the task of integration of different tasks to develop a full-fledged product. Problem solving and finding solutions.

My Masters Research thesis Project – Development of a software defined radio for nanosatellite communications.

At Aflare Systems Inc., our projects are aimed at effectively creating value in space technology by developing leading edge yet cost effective solutions to make space communication more affordable for small companies and universities researchers.

I have always been a vocal supporter for women in this cutting edge world of space technology. Inspired by personalities such as Kalpana Chawla & Sunita Williams, I hope that we will drive this exhilarating research oriented field for technological growth in our world. I actively participate in Go-Eng Girl workshops to encourage students towards this field.

A famous quote by Dhirubai Ambani – For those who dare to dream, there is a whole world to win.” Another inspiring thought which I follow: Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it.[/toggle]

Through outreach and professional development activities, research, partnerships, thought leadership and online initiatives, we work with industry and academia to educate on the value of diversity for innovation, to inspire women to thrive and to celebrate the contributions of women in science and engineering.
