ARCS helped me tremendously. Right now in my graduate program, I have to do a thesis and what I’m doing for ARCS, which involves compiler design with Dr. Kyle Dewey, is very integrated with what I’m doing for my thesis for the school. And in addition to that I was able to get connections with some JPL people, able to go through some interviews, and land a summer internship with them. So, it’s very life-changing. I love ARCS.”

“One of my undergraduate research projects was actually the STEAHM Bubble, which is about a football-sized field of autonomous research space that is hopefully going to be built here at CSUN‘s campus… The goal of that is to be able to collaborate with industry partners to give them a test facility to run experiments and to have places for collaboration…”

STEAHM Bubble

ARCS, in partnership with JPL and industry partners, is proposing to build the STEAHM Bubble, a 60,000-square-foot air-supported dome to research and test next-generation, autonomous vehicles (e.g., Mars rover and helicopter) designed for space exploration missions.
