University of Alabama Researcher to Work on Navy Program

by Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA — A teacher at the University of Alabama is getting more than $500,000 to conduct research with the U.S. Navy.

A statement from the school says Andrew Lemmon, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, will receive the money over three years for his work with the Office of Naval Research.

Lemmon is working to help advance technology in the Navy’s plan for constructing ships over the next three decades. That includes a potential shift to methods that would allow ship propulsion and other systems to be powered from a common system, reducing the total amount of power needed.

Lemmon is one of 31 recipients through a naval program for young inventors. More than 340 people applied.
