Welcome from the Executive Director

Welcome to the Advanced Radar Research Center (ARRC) at the University of Oklahoma! The ARRC is approaching its 10-year anniversary, 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 100 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 recently moved into the state-of-the-art Radar Innovations Laboratory – a 35,000-sqft working laboratory dedicated to innovations in radar technology and science. With the complete support of the university administration, the ARRC is poised to become the go to place for all things radar! -- Bob Palmer
