University of Kansas Key Developments

The University of Kansas and Honeywell Federal Manufacturing and Technologies to Collaborate on National Security Technology Projects

The University of Kansas is entering into a new research collaboration that will position faculty and students to work with industry on technologies that enhance national security. A master collaboration agreement will be signed on Feb. 16, in Lawrence between KU and Honeywell Federal Manufacturing and Technologies. The agreement will expedite future research contracts funded through Honeywell, enabling the two organizations to work more closely on research and development projects. It will also promote interaction and exchange between KU researchers and Honeywell personnel. Honeywell manages and operates the National Security Campus in Kansas City, Missouri, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration. With more than 2,700 employees, the National Security Campus is a government-sponsored, multi-mission engineering and manufacturing enterprise delivering trusted national security products and government services. The first example of interaction between KU and Honeywell is scheduled for Feb. 17. A daylong technical exchange at the School of Engineering will feature selected KU department chairs, center directors and researchers making presentations on topics of mutual interest. In addition, Honeywell is making its first long-term loan of advanced research equipment this spring and is funding a research project at KU's Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS). Repackaging ultra-wideband components designed and built at CReSIS will enhance current systems used on long-range manned aircraft for monitoring of snow accumulation and for future operation in harsh environments on small unmanned vehicles.

She will be involved directly in KU's overall efforts to increase workforce development, community-based research and service, entrepreneurship and economic development. Burkhart spent the past 18 years at Sprint in progressively more responsible positions, most recently serving as talent acquisition manager and president of its Women's Employee Resource Group.
