QUESTION: militarism and public research universities

question / pregunta: 

What projects does the University of Illinois at Chicago participate in with private military contractors? What type of research does UIC do with funding from the Department of Defense? What programs at UIC are sponsored or partnered with private military contractors and/or the DoD?


From Caroline Nappo, a PhD student in the LIS program at UIUC:

here's a brief outline of UIC's research funding from 2006

Electrical and Computer Engineering
seems to be a big recipient

A great book on the history of defense/academic collaboration is Stuart Leslie's The Cold War and American Science, or via Google Books. Though this is historical, not a contemporary survey.
