PONCA CITY, Okla., May 22 (UPI) -- A U.S. research institution and Navmar Applied Sciences Corp. are jointly pursuing projects for the defense, homeland security and energy markets.

Under the agreement between University Multispectral Laboratories and NASC, UML will expand on a number of research and development opportunities for commercialization that have resulted from the organization's current working relationship with NASC, which supplies the U.S. military with a number of technologies, including acoustics, air vehicles and electro-optics.

"NASC and UML are both built on a foundation of scientific innovation, quality and commitment to serving the complex, changing needs of our nation's warriors and first responders," said UML lab director Web Keogh. "The partnership between our two organizations accelerates our combined ability to deliver crucial new technologies and advanced systems to the theater of operations, where they will enhance security and save lives.

"We look forward to achieving many exciting, important milestones together."

UML was started in 2006 by Oklahoma State University and the state of Oklahoma as a public-private partnership and is a leading center for development and analysis of advanced sensors, unmanned aviation systems and other technologies.
