Funding secured for national defense research at Baylor

by Louis Ojeda Jr.

WACO - A federal grant will allow important national defense research to be conducted at Baylor University.

In the 2011 Defense Appropriations Bill, which passed the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee this week, $1 million has been secured for research targeted toward extending the avionics systems program.

"This research program will strengthen our nation's defense, create jobs and boost economic growth in Central Texas," said Congressman Chet Edwards.

The project will be part of the Baylor Research and Innovation Collaboration which is expected to bring hundreds of jobs to the Baylor, TSTC and other industries.
