UDRI said it brought in $166 million in sponsored research performed in fiscal year 2019. That represents an 11 percent increase over last year’s mark of $149.8 million, the university said.
New awards in fiscal 2019 helped the university not only attain a new record, but reach $2.5 billion in cumulative sponsored research, boosted by Air Force contracts for work in hypersonics, advanced power technologies, structures and landing gear.

UDRI employs about 640 full-time and part-time employees, an increase of nearly 200 in three years. Nearly 100 faculty and 370 students also engage in sponsored research.
