Welcome from the Executive Director

Welcome to the Advanced Radar Research Center (ARRC) at the University of Oklahoma! The ARRC is now more than 10 years old, and in that time has grown from a small group of energetic faculty and students into the largest academic radar program in the nation with well over 120 members. We focus on interdisciplinary education, leveraging a nationally ranked meteorology program and aggressively growing engineering departments. Our School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, for example, has moved up 25 spots in national rankings in just the last year, largely due to a significant growth in radar and applied electromagnetics. The ARRC resides in the state-of-the-art Radar Innovations Laboratory – a 35,000-sqft working laboratory dedicated to innovations in radar technology and science. With strong support from the university administration, the ARRC is quickly becoming known as the go to place for all things radar! -- Bob Palmer
