ECE Faculty Win DoD Awards

ECE Faculty Win DoD Awards

Three ECE faculty members have been awarded Department of Defense (DoD) Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) Awards. These are grants for research instrumentation.

The ECE faculty were:

1. Rama Chellappa: Multi-sensor Remote Biometrics System

2. Edo Waks: Superconducting Magnet for Quantum Information Processing with Spin States

3. Thomas Murphy: Complexity-Based Optical Sensor Networks

Two other Clark School faculty also received DURIP awards: James Duncan of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Inder Chopra of the Department of Aerospace Engineering.

DURIP is designed to fill a critical need of scholars by purchasing state-of-the-art equipment that augments current university capabilities or develops new capabilities to perform cutting edge defense research. Academic institutions generally have difficulty purchasing instruments costing $50,000 or more under most research contracts and grants. The awards are expected to range from $50,000 to $1 million and average approximately $235,000.
