19 Dec 2019
WASHINGTON — Professor Richard Christenson isn’t allowed to say exactly what his students at the University of Connecticut are researching for the U.S. Navy.
His program, the National Institute for Undersea Vehicle Technology, collaborates with the University of Rhode Island and General Dynamics Electric Boat to develop the next-generation of submarines and the workforce that will build them. The program has received millions in federal funding in 2019 and will compete for more government dollars authorized by a recent bipartisan defense bill.
