The Department of Defense announced today that 225 university researchers at 111 academic institutions have been selected to receive research instrumentation awards. The awards will total $67.8 million and will be made under the Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP).
The Defense University Research Instrumentation Program supports the purchase of state of the art equipment that augments current university capabilities or develops new capabilities to perform cutting edge defense research and associated graduate student research training.
The awards are the result of a merit competition jointly conducted by three DoD research offices: the Army Research Office, Office of Naval Research, and Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Those offices will make the awards, which are subject to the successful completion of negotiations with the academic institutions.
