  • USACE summit touts innovation as key to future development

    The 2021 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Innovation Summit was conducted virtually, October 25-29.
  • ERDC researchers support Army and Marine Corps with Vehicle Cone Index testing

    The U.S. Army Engineering Research and Development Center (ERDC) is working to help the Army and Marine Corps determine if a their vehicles can safely cross certain terrains.
  • ERDC Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory developing new airfield matting system

    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) is leading a new developmental effort to design a lightweight airfield matting system that can be used to support aircraft for many missions where the AM2 is overdesigned and difficult to deploy.
  • ERDC employee graduates from U.S. Army War College

    Earlier this summer, Dr. Amy Bednar, an employee of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), joined the prestigious ranks of U.S. Army War College alumni.
  • Two inducted into Waterways Experiment Station Gallery of Distinguished Employees

    Though Howard W. McGee Jr. and Dr. Fred T. Tracy had very different careers during their time at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), the two now have something major in common—they’re both 2021 inductees to the prestigious Waterways Experiment Station Gallery of Distinguished Employees. Surrounded by family, friends and coworkers gathered virtually and in-person, McGee and Tracy, both of Vicksburg, were inducted to the gallery at a ceremony on July 15, 2021, at the ERDC Information Technology Laboratory.
  • ERDC brings history, experience to the crucial fight against climate change

    In early June, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a report showing carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere had reached levels not seen in more than 4 million years. The report has brought more weight to the emphasis President Biden’s administration has placed on a “climate crisis that threatens our people and communities, public health and economy, and, starkly, our ability to live on the planet Earth.”
  • Trip to Republic of Korea provides opportunity to give back

    A team from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) recently deployed to the Republic of Korea to conduct cybersecurity vulnerability assessments of operational technology (OT), control systems and supervisory control and data acquisition systems on behalf of the Department of the Army. Due to local COVID-19 restrictions, the Advanced Threat Landscape and Simulations (ATLS) team was required to quarantine in barracks at Camp Humphreys for 14 days upon their arrival, a time they got through with the help of local volunteers. Grateful for their support, the team seized the opportunity to pay the kindness forward later in the trip.
  • ERDC labs form team to tackle climate change

    In response to a presidential executive order detailing the intensifying effects of climate change and the global shift away from carbon-intensive energy sources, multiple laboratories from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) are combining their expertise to take on climatic variations.
  • ERDC mourns loss of dredging industry expert

    The dredging industry has suffered a great loss with the recent death of Timothy L. Welp, a research hydraulic engineer with the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC).
  • Using simulation tools for operational readiness in maritime and littoral operations

    Operational readiness is a term used throughout the six branches of the U.S. military. The ability of armed forces to conduct the full range of military operations, regardless of a posed threat, is contingent upon how well units are manned, equipped, trained and led. To increase readiness, researchers at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) have partnered with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps on a joint venture to use ship simulation and numerical models in the planning of amphibious assaults and littoral operations.
