The NASA EPSCoR Program helps to develop long-term, selfsustaining, nationally competitive research capabilities and infrastructure in Kansas. State universities, government agencies, and industry work together to establish expertise and new abilities in areas that are important to both NASA and Kansas (e.g., aerospace and related). Project funds competitively support selected investigators who make lasting contributions to Kansas’ research infrastructure, academic programs, and economic development. Over the last three years more than a dozen university researchers, twenty-five university students, nine government researchers, and seven companies have been involved in the NASA EPSCoR sponsored efforts. Perhaps most important, significant research infrastructure enhancements in aeronautics, unmanned aircraft related technologies, materials, and astronautics have been established in Kansas. Additional investigator grants, totaling over $2M, have been obtained as a result of the work. Grant Hall, the symbol of Fort Leavenworth and headquarters of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center.
