UNO Receives Grant from the Navy
University to test research techniques to improve warship design.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The University of New Orleans has received a $210,000 grant from the Navy s Office of Naval Research to test information gathering and analysis techniques intended to improve warship design.
The goal for warship designers is to produce a vessel that can be repurposed numerous times throughout its lifespan.
The focus of this research is to enhance predictions of the likelihood of future changes in warfare that would affect warship requirements.
The grant's principal investigator is associate professor of management Cherie Trumbach.
She will work on the project with colleagues from the university's School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.
