ARSENLAdvanced Robotic Systems Engineering Laboratory

The Advanced Robotic Systems Engineering Laboratory (ARSENL) represents a diverse academic and research group at the Naval Postgraduate School, emphasizing that robotic and unmanned systems merit a holistic, multi-disciplinary  approach for their design, their employment, and their future concepts.



Center for Autonomous Vehicle Research (CAVR)

The primary goal of the NPS Center for Autonomous Vehicle Research (CAVR) is to educate students in the development and use of technologies needed for unmanned vehicles through coursework, thesis and dissertation research. The secondary goal of the CAVR is to advance Naval autonomous vehicle operations by providing support to the fleet, Navy labs and Program offices, testing and experimentation of advanced technologies, independent verification and validation of a variety of novel autonomous vehicles concepts, and by innovative concept development. Currently the CARV houses two autonomous submarines (Aries and REMUS), Sea Fox surface vehicle and a wide variety of Tier I and Tier II class unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) staring from Scan Eagle UAV and all way down to miniature flapping-wing vehicles.




A communal and open environment for the extended NPS family to enhance its exposure to robotics across all backgrounds and disciplines through hands-on experiences and informal learning in robotics.

They offer hands-on classes and drop-in hours.


Dynamics and Control Laboratory at NPS

Information about the Graduate School of Engineering and Applied Science laboratory that supports the control, robotics, and autonomous systems related courses at NPS.


Autonomous Systems Track

The department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers an Autonomous Systems Track (AST) within the framework of a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. The program can be completed in four to six quarters, depending on academic preparedness of the student, and is developed around several core courses related to modeling and guidance navigation and control algorithms design for autonomous underwater, surface, ground, aerial systems, satellites and spacecraft. Additional course electives can be taken to enhance specialty areas, along with thesis research related to a specific type of an autonomous system or its component, or a wide range of other useful military technologies.
