Enable the Warfighter

ERDC’s support for our warfighters includes significant research and development in two of our four business areas: Military Engineering and Geospatial Research and Engineering.

ERDC’s work in Military Engineering provides warfighters with innovative technologies and capabilities to enable force protection and maneuverability. For example, ERDC has led the way in developing novel, lightweight, rapidly-constructed protection systems that can be expediently deployed in remote locations. We’ve also developed survivability decision aids to allow for rapid assessment of current protection postures, as well as provide enhanced designs to increase defense against attacks. We also solve problems in the area of force projection, including novel bridging concepts, lightweight matting solutions, enhanced construction technologies, and automated planning and design solutions.

Meanwhile, ERDC’s work in Geospatial Research and Engineering recognizes that success in the battlespace environment depends heavily on location and spatial relationships and geographical data and information. So, ERDC provides warfighters with the data, analytic tools, information and decision framework capabilities to ensure superior situational awareness. ERDC arms warfighters with information superiority so they can accurately and quickly gauge effects on personnel, platforms, sensors, and systems.
