GRAMBLING, La. ― Two grants totaling $1.8 million have been awarded by the Air Force to two Grambling State University professors.

The News Star reports that Yenumula Reddy, a computer science professor, and Naidu Seetala, a physics professor, will conduct research on computing, robotics and related applications.

The grants are part of an Air Force research program to develop war-fighting technologies.

One of the research projects will address technical barriers involved in developing ultra-high temperature ceramic materials for use in aerospace defense and national security applications.
