UDaily: UD's Badiey among researchers selected to share in Defense Department funding

University of Delaware professor Mohsen Badiey is among 225 university researchers at 111 academic institutions selected to share in $67.8 million in new funding, according to a Department of Defense (DoD) news release. The awards will be made under the Defense University Research Instrumentation Program, which supports the purchase of state of the art equipment that augments current university capabilities or develops new capabilities to perform cutting edge defense research of importance to national defense.

Awardees were selected through a highly competitive proposal process conducted by three DoD research offices: the Army Research Office, Office of Naval Research (ONR) and Air Force Office of Scientific Research.

The nearly $400,000 in new funding will enhance Badiey’s ongoing ONR-funded research to better understand and predict how acoustic signals will travel in the Arctic as the topography and oceanography change in the presence or absence of seasonal ice cover; variable oceanography and moving ice.
