NSF Graduate Research Fellowships have provided support for Arthur Mahoney and Katie Popek.

Many of our projects have benefited from University Outreach Program of Advanced Motion Controls. AMC has supplied many of our amplifiers and power supplies at a significantly reduced price.

The University of Utah, the College of Engineering, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and the Technology Commercialization Office have supported a significant amount of our research through generous start-up funds, the Funding Incentive Seed Grant program, and the Commercialization Engine program.
