      The Michigan Tech Research Institute has a $1 million contract to conduct radar-related research for the U.S. military. Houghton-based Michigan Technological University on Thursday announced the 6-month contract with the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

The institute will work to develop an approach to separating and analyzing radar signals by the function they are intended to perform.
