Prof. Shima’s research interests focus on the guidance of vehicles, mainly aerial, operating individually or as a team. The interdisciplinary work of CASY scientists spans from cooperatively planning and guiding spacecraft with regard to optimizing and following their trajectories, and low-level control of a single vehicle. Their work seeks to devise new algorithms and strategies for performing both cooperative and individual tasks.

Prof. Shima received all three degrees from the Technion, earning his Ph.D. in 2001, and an MBA from Tel Aviv University. He joined the Technion in 2006 and founded the CASY lab. From 2020 to 2023, he was dean of the Department of Aerospace Engineering. He holds the Lottie and Max Dresher Chair in Aerospace Performance and Propulsion.
