Defense Department Funding Supports Research Instrumentation

Five Clark School professors have won Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) funding to support the purchase of research instrumentation:

Assistant Professor Anya Jones (aerospace engineering) for "Equipment for the Study of Micro Air Vehicle Gust Response."

Professor P. Krishnaprasad (electrical and computer engineering and Institute for Systems Research) for "Testbed for Synthesis of Collective Behavior from Fundamental Building Blocks."

Associate Professor Raymond Sedwick (aerospace engineering) for "Development of a Dusty Plasma Bombardment Source Using Laser Ablation."

Assistant Professor Edo Waks (electrical and computer engineering) for "Terahertz Source and Measurement for Spectroscopy, Communications, Sensing."

Professor Michael Zachariah (mechanical engineering) for "Measurement System for Energetic Materials Decomposition."

The Defense University Research Instrumentation Program supports the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment that augments current university capabilities or develops new university capabilities to perform cutting-edge defense research.  The program meets a critical need by enabling university researchers to purchase scientific equipment costing $50,000 or more to conduct DoD-relevant research. Researchers generally have difficulty purchasing instruments costing that much under research contracts and grants. For more information, please read the press release about this year's awards.
