There may be another effort in the works. I'll release information as soon as I get permission. It will be semi-public in the initial stages. It has some names attached already that the long timers around here would recognize.

There maybe several mistakes here... These are darn hard numbers to come by. If anyone has personal knowledge, I'd be interested.

EMC did not get the $25 mil. It was cut short.
Back of the envelope puts them at about $30 million over the life of the project.

That 25.1 Million was a composition of numbers pre-2008 (mostly HEPS funding, EPRI grants, Money for PXL-1, SBIR, ect...) minus the 1.8 million and 900K from the Navy. I will look again at the number.


Total: 457 million +/- 25 million.
