CRANE — Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division and the University of Southern Indiana are strengthening their research and development partnership through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement. NSWC Crane and USI will use the CRADA to study chemical reactions. A formal CRADA signing ceremony took place Monday at Crane.
The CRADA between NSWC Crane and USI allows both entities to leverage each other’s subject matter experts, laboratory space and high-tech equipment.
“We are excited to embark on this latest chapter of our partnership with NSWC Crane,” said Ronald Rochon, USI president. “It’s this kind of research and project that showcases the breadth of knowledge and talent that our faculty and students have to offer here at USI. We are honored to be part of a project that not only has a regional impact, but the potential to impact the well-being of individuals on a global scale.”
Brooke Pyne, the Technology Transfer and Small Business Innovation Research Manager at NSWC Crane, says the ongoing partnership with USI continues to grow and impact the region.
“This CRADA further expands the R&D (research and development) climate within the regional ecosystem," she said. "Not only do USI and Crane directly benefit by partnering on a critical tech area, the region gains expertise and technology advances that could have a lasting economic impact.”
