$4.79 Million Nanotechnology Contract Awarded to MU Researcher

The U.S. Army, seeking to benefit from emerging advances in nanotechnology, has turned to a University of Missouri-Columbia professor to develop miniature devices that will help improve military capabilities and generate alternative sources of energy.

Shubhra Gangopadhyay, an electrical and computer engineering professor in MU's College of Engineering, has received a $4.79 million contract to build small devices to enhance the performance of Army weapons systems. The three-year agreement is based on military need and calls for the development of numerous devices that will be used to power warheads, rockets, missiles and guns. The devices resemble electric circuits.
