    Structural Health Monitoring key to a more resilient, modern infrastructure network

    Given the aging condition of much of the nation’s navigation infrastructure, managers need accurate and real-time information on the conditions of such structures as locks, dams and bridges operating well beyond their expected design lives.
  • Remote sensing gives USACE an edge at detecting harmful algal blooms

    The rapid bloom of tiny freshwater microorganisms, called cyanobacteria, sometimes releases toxins that are harmful to aquatic life and can contaminate drinking water. These harmful algal blooms (HABs) pose a significant threat to public health and safety, ecosystems, freshwater resources and recreation. They also cause about $82 million in economic losses to the seafood, restaurant and tourism industries each year.
  • CorpsCam supports proactive management of federal beach projects

    WASHINGTON -Each year, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) executes numerous federal beach projects designed to help protect the economy and the environment of our nation's coastal areas. However, little data is available for many of these projects because of high costs, restricted access and safety. This means districts must make decisions based on very limited information, resulting in inaccurate estimates and reactive management decisions. CorpsCam is a new USACE project that aims to fill this void by using automated, remote video technology to better monitor federal beach and other coastal projects. The cameras provide hourly images that can be processed into maps, which can then be refined into usable data.
  • Kit offers easier, less-expensive solution to sand boil threat

    After years of development and laboratory testing, engineers are at the precipice of giving USACE Divisions and Districts a vital tool in protecting our nation’s critical levee systems and the lives and livelihoods those levees defend.
