Scientist wins 2017 USACE Innovator of the Year Award
Dr. Richard Massaro of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center is the winner of the 2017 USACE Innovator of the Year Award. His accomplishment, “Tactical Full Motion Video to 3D,” benefits the Army and Department of Defense in providing Soldiers and deployed forces with highly-detailed geospatial data delivered by manned and unmanned systems. Massaro, a physical scientist in ERDC’s Geospatial Research Laboratory, was also recognized for his accomplishment by the U.S. Army Materiel Command as the winner in the Individual-Civilian category of the Fiscal Year 2016 Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene Award for Innovation.

Dr. Burton Suedel of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center accepts the Western Dredging Association's 2017 Environmental Excellence Award for Mitigation and Adaptation to Climate Change. He is flanked by Craig Vogt, chairman of the WEDA Environmental Commission and Marcel Hermans, WEDA president and chairman. Suedel and his Environmental Laboratory team members, Dr. Jacob Berkowitz and Dr. Christy Foran, collaborated with New Orleans District, Weeks Marine, Inc., Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, and Mike Hooks, Inc. to capture the award. WEDA recognized the team’s efforts associated with strategic placement of dredged material on the Atchafalaya River in Louisiana.  Placement of the dredged material allowed nature to form Horseshoe Bend Island, and the ERDC team developed metrics to capture the wide array of benefits the island provides.

A barracks hut constructed with the Automated Construction of Expeditionary Structures is a new construction technology that prints concrete structures. The printer reduces building materials shipped by half and construction manpower requirements by 62 percent when compared to expedient plywood construction in overseas military construction. This hut resides at the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory in Champaign, Illinois.
