WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State University’s aviation research program has landed a $33 million contract for the Army’s high-speed missile program.

The Wichita Eagle reports the three-year contract calls for the National Institute for Aviation Research to make missiles lighter and cheaper while improving performance.

Wichita State interim president Andy Tompkins said the contract will give students, both undergraduates and graduates, “an advantage no other university in the country can match.”
