Clark School faculty members have won five Department of Defense (DoD) Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) Awards. These are grants for research instrumentation.

The recipients and areas of research are:

1. Inder Chopra (aerospace engineering): Microsystem Mechanics

2. Rama Chellappa (electrical and computer engineering [ECE]): Multi-sensor Remote Biometrics System

3. James Duncan (mechanical engineering): Measurement of Spray

4. Edo Waks (ECE and Institute for Research in Engineering and Applied Physics): Superconducting Magnet for Quantum Information Processing with Spin States

5. Thomas Murphy (ECE and Institute for Research in Engineering and Applied Physics): Complexity-Based Optical Sensor Networks

DURIP is designed to fill a critical need of scholars by purchasing state-of-the-art equipment that augments current university capabilities or develops new capabilities to perform cutting edge defense research. Academic institutions generally have difficulty purchasing instruments costing $50,000 or more under most research contracts and grants. The awards are expected to range from $50,000 to $1 million and average approximately $235,000.
