A research center at the University of Dayton has won a $42.2 million dollar contract from the U.S. Air Force.
The Dayton Daily News reports that the contract awarded to the UD’s Research Institute will maintain 30 existing jobs at the facility.
And another $1.2 million contract from GE Aviation for related research will create as many as five new positions there.
The Air Force contract is for research and development in advanced power and thermal management technologies for hypersonic and long-range aircraft.
The seven-year program will allow the facility to perform research and development of materials and technologies for more efficient, compact and lightweight power and thermal management systems.
