The Georgia Tech Opportunity Research Scholars team consisting of undergraduate researchers Hiba Murali, Erik Centeno, and Evan Shi with mentor Cheng Qi captured first prize at the ORS awards ceremony on Tuesday night, 16 April 2018. The research competition award was decided from a field of 20 teams by a collection of 18 evaluating faculty members from GTRI and the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This group, which had already presented their research twice this school year at IEEE Wireless in Space and Extreme Environments 2017 in Montreal and IEEE RFID 2018 in Orlando, had a great deal of practice and preparation. Darel Preble — a representative from the industry sponsor, the Space Solar Power Institute — was on hand to enjoy the award with the team. Well done, Hiba, Evan, Erik, and Cheng!
