    Multi-laboratory project explores ways to deliver manpower, supplies over complex Arctic shorelines

    Earlier this month, Integrated Support for Operations in Polar Seas (ISOPS) team members – comprised of interdisciplinary personnel from ERDC’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) and the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory – conducted fieldwork in Utqiagvik, Alaska, aimed at accelerating development of environmental support tools for Logistics-Over-The-Shore (LOTS) operations across Arctic coastal boundaries.
  • ERDC researcher using insects to help the Warfighter and the Nation

    ERDC's Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) is known to discover, develop, deliver and sustain trusted engineering and scientific solutions impacting built and natural infrastructure for the Warfighter and the Nation. Researcher Anne McCarthy takes that mission seriously, so she's called in Madagascar hissing cockroaches for her project "Insect antennae for odorant-driven real-time decision processing," which basically means their antennae will help identify and sense chemicals in an area.

    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) recently hosted their Research and Development 2024 (RD24) workshop.
  • CRREL partners with NHAS to bolster STEM education in the Upper Valley

    The U.S. Army Engineer and Research Development Center’s (ERDC) Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) has partnered with the New Hampshire Academy of Science (NHAS) to increase STEM education opportunities for middle and high school students in the Upper Valley.
  • Two ERDC labs team up for one cool project

    Two ERDC laboratories, the Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory (GSL) and Cold Regions Research Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), collaborated to conduct several full-scale placements of JetCon JC400 rapid-setting concrete as a part of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering’s Foreign Comparative Testing program.
  • Infrastructure Innovation: New Poe Lock arrestor arm is the largest U.S. civil works component produced by 3D printer

    As America’s civil works infrastructure ages, managers need innovative solutions to replace parts that have been in service for nearly a century. Often, these original components were fabricated using vintage material and manufacturing methods, making them costly, burdensome and time-consuming to replace. Responding to this need, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is employing cutting-edge 3D-printing techniques to manufacture these parts faster and at a lower cost while maintaining, and even improving, their properties.

    DARPA ‘ICE’ program kicks off at ERDC-CRREL

    Making ice work “for” and not “against” the U.S. military is the mission behind Ice Control for cold Environments (ICE), a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program that recently kicked off at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover, New Hampshire.
  • Volcon delivers ERDC’s first all-electric Stag Utility Terrain Vehicle

    Thanks to the latest delivery at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center's (ERDC) Contingency Basing Integration Training and Evaluation Center (CBITEC), the push to electrify the battlefield is one step closer.
  • ERDC research aims to model, combat respiratory infections

    A cross-laboratory team of U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) researchers has launched a new project that seeks to revolutionize the way military bases prepare for and combat respiratory infections, with implications that could reach far beyond military installations and into public spaces across the globe.

    Attacking challenges at high speed

    Computer scientists at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) merge high-performance computing (HPC) and data analytics, giving them the capability to process large amounts of data with unprecedented speed.
  • ERDC leads advances in sustainable materials for military construction

    Climate change is a major priority for the Biden administration, which has set a goal to reach net zero emissions by no later than 2050. As the Army works to meet these goals and accomplish the objectives set in its own Climate Strategy, it has begun to focus more attention on one of its biggest emissions drivers: construction activities related to its vast inventory of buildings.
  • ERDC researcher experiences ‘awesome’ maiden trip to Antarctica

    Hannah Wittmann, a research physical scientist at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover, New Hampshire, recently returned from her first trip to Antarctica, where she helped perform critical crevasse detection and mitigation work along the roughly 1,000-mile long South Pole Traverse (SPoT) route.
