DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The University of Dayton is partnering with the Air Force on a massive research project.
Plane parts by the truckload are being brought into the UD Research Institute. The aircraft will be used to demonstrate and test technology designed to lower the cost of the Air Force’s C-130 fleet.
“This is so important for students, not only to enhance their education, it will help prepare them for good jobs when they leave here and we are helping to create the workforce for the future with programs like this,” says Pamela Gregg, Communications Administrator with UDRI.
The joint project with the Air Force and UD is expected to take 18 to 24 months.
