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 two current graduate students, Christopher R. Simpson B.S. and Christopher D. Simpson M.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.
