Welcome to the Aircraft Rapid Prototyping Laboratory (ARPL) at the University of Alabama.
The ARPL laboratory is located in Hardaway Hall at the University of Alabama. Dr. O'Neill is the current director of the lab. His current graduate students, Christopher R. Simpson B.S., Christopher D. Simpson M.S., and Jamie M. Moon, B.S., can be found in the laboratory working on current research interests. Our students are performing research as well focusing on topics from computer vision, autonomous flight, and CFD visualization techniques. The lab is primarily focused on the rapid prototyping of aircraft for research purposes. Please feel free to contact Dr. O'Neill about research opportunities. ARPL is also partnered with the Tuska UAV Design Team.
