Starkville-based Camgian Microsystems Corp. has received a $6.99 million U.S. Army contract to develop technologies to stop unwanted unmanned aircraft system (UAS) incursions, U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) announced Monday.
“We are grateful for the continued support of Sen. Hyde-Smith and our congressional delegation,” said Dr. Gary Butler, chairman and CEO of Camgian.
All work will be performed in Mississippi.
As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Hyde-Smith worked to secure funding for Department of Defense research, development, test, and evaluation accounts to support Army, Air Force, Navy, Space Force, and Defense Department research initiatives.
