MU Nanotechnology Researchers get $10 million Defense Contract
COLUMBIA (AP) The University of Missouri's nanotechnology researchers have received a defense-related contract to develop small power supplies and shock-wave generators that could be used to detonate military explosives. It's the second defense-related contract the university has received for its research and development efforts in the new field, which works with microscopic particles the size of atoms. The university is partnering with an Army arsenal in New Jersey to create the devices. Under the deal, the university will receive up to $10 million . In July, the university also received a $3.5 million two-year contract to build miniature devices to enhance the performance of U.S. Army weapons systems.
