LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Utah State University's Space Dynamics Lab has $5 million coming its way. The Senate Appropriations Committee has approved Department of Defense funding for the next fiscal year, including funding for Utah State.
The money is part of a bill outlining about $93 million for military projects.
It was requested by Utah Senator Bob Bennett.
The lab's funds will build upon other technologies that focus on reconnaissance systems and imagery processing. This new technology will enable soldiers in the field to find, identify and track moving enemy targets in real time using geotracking devices.
The lab is a nonprofit research corporation owned by Utah State.
