The Department of Defense has awarded a $26 million Navy contract to the University of Hawaiʻi’s Applied Research Laboratory.

The grant covers 232,200 staff hours of research and development and engineering services in ocean environmental effects, astronomical research, advanced electro-optical systems, laser and remote sensing detection systems and other areas.

When the contract establishing the laboratory at UH was issued in 2007, officials estimated that it could bring $50 million in federal funds to Hawaiʻi over five years.
