ARC – Undergraduate Aerospace Research Coop

ARC is an undergraduate-led research organization dedicated to advancing aeronautical and space research, with some funding from NASA California Space Grant through our Starlight project and assistance from the UCSB chapter of IEEE . We are partnering with them to do some high-altitude balloon launches with payloads of our current experiments. They are also working towards certification for launching high-altitude amateur rockets.

New students wishing to do research in aerospace and interstellar exploration are directed to contact ARC directly.
