Katrina funds aid scientific projects

Abstract:
The other two projects are heavily based in nanotechnology and the development of materials on the tiniest of scales at LSU, Louisiana Tech University and the University of New Orleans.

The $3.6 million Louisiana Tech-led Center for Excellence in Integrated Smart Sensor Surveillance System is a partnership with LSU.

It is to develop tiny sensors and other equipment partly for the planned "Cyberspace Command" at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City, said Les Guice, Louisiana Tech vice president for research and development.

The final $5 million will go toward a new Center for Advance Materials and Nanotechnology in a partnership with Louisiana Tech at UNO's Advanced Materials Research Institute.
