Point your Internet browser to the U.S. Government's online database that contains records of Federal contract awards:

http://www.usaspending.gov

and search for the University of Nebraska.  After entering the search, you may click on Department of Defense among the Agency filters on the right side of the initial results list to refine the results to contracts for which the Department of Defense is the originating agency.

The America's News database contains the texts of articles published in the Omaha World Herald (1983-) and Lincoln Journal-Star (1997-), and both newspapers typically publish articles describing at least the larger Federally-funded projects at the university.  A simple search like this retrieves a number of potentially pertinent articles:

America's News is available through the All Databases A-Z directory linked under the Research Tools column on the left side of the library homepage.  Off-campus access is limited by license to current UNO students, but the library has public computers available.  The Omaha Public Library also subscribes to America's News, and OPL cardholders can search the database from home.
