ERDC provides cutting edge solutions for Army installations, training ranges and contingency basing, particularly in the areas of environmental sustainability and energy security. Our approach is to advance and exploit science and technology to maximize the long-term contributions of the built and natural environments to the Army’s readiness and operational success. Solutions focus on highly sustainable and cost-effective approaches for the life-cycle management of military lands, ranges and infrastructure.

Our technologies enhance warfighter training experience, reduce training land restrictions, improve Soldier safety, provide for efficient use of limited resources such as energy and water, and facilitate sustainability planning with local and regional communities. We collaborate with other Department of Defense and federal agencies, academia and industry to speed the fielding and transfer of new products.
