Information Technology Laboratory (ITL)

The Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), part of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), is a premier Department of Defense (DoD) laboratory engaged in the creation and application of advanced information technology in support of the warfighter and the Nation. ITL helps enable the missions of the ERDC, Army, DoD, and other agencies by conceiving, planning, managing, conducting, and coordinating research and development (R&D) in high-performance computing (HPC), data science, computer-aided and interdisciplinary engineering, high performance data analytics (HPDA), software engineering, computer science, systems engineering, cybersecurity, and instrumentation systems. Through a balanced program of R&D and demonstration, ITL advances the Army’s knowledge and ability to use revolutionary information technology to address a wide range of engineering and scientific challenges.
ITL's newest facility, the Dynamic Immersive Virtual Environment (DIVE) laboratory, allows researchers to test and develop solutions for the Department of Defense using leading augmented and virtual reality gear. The rise of this technology has already changed the way we work and learn, and it will now be used to allow Army engineers, scientists, and stakeholders to immerse themselves in true scale, 3D environments.
Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, 54th Chief of Engineers and Commanding General, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers administers the Oath of Office to the newest inductees of the Senior Executive Service, Dr. Lance Hansen, Dr. David Horner and Dr. Ty Wamsley, at a ceremony held at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Vicksburg, Miss.
Figure 2. In BIM modeling of the ERDC headquarters building there is not just one model created by the Yates Construction team, but several that are integrated into a composite master model. Each discipline including structural engineering, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering creates a model independently of all the others, based upon the Mobile District’s original contract plan set, which is the starting point.
