    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.
  • 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.
