NEWS RELEASE from the United States Department of
DoD Awards $43.9 Million to Universities for
The Department of Defense today announced plans to award $43.9
million to academic institutions to support the purchase of
research instrumentation. The awards are being made under the
Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP).
The 212 awards to 108 academic institutions are expected to range
from about $60,000 to $990,000 and average $207,000. DURIP 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. DURIP meets a critical need
by enabling university researchers to purchase scientific equipment
costing $50,000 or more to conduct DoD relevant research. The
researchers generally have difficulty purchasing instruments
costing that much under their research contracts and grants.
This announcement is the result of a merit competition for DURIP
funding conducted by the Army Research Office, Office of Naval
Research, and Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Each office
requested proposals from university investigators working in areas
of importance to DoD, such as information technology, remote
sensing, propulsion, electronics and electro optics, advanced
materials, and ocean science and engineering. In response to the
requests, the research offices collectively received 932 proposals,
requesting $253 million in support for research equipment.
