  • ERDC, Microsoft agreement aims to analyze risk of extreme weather in the cloud

    Modeling the risk of extreme weather and natural disasters along the nation’s coastline is critical to the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) mission of delivering innovative solutions for safer, better world.
  • ERDC science helps USACE districts ease time-of-year dredging restrictions

    It was when he was a graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University that Dr. Matt Balazik, a research ecologist with the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Environmental Laboratory, began intensely studying Atlantic sturgeon, its populations now listed as either threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act.
  • Trip to Republic of Korea provides opportunity to give back

    A team from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) recently deployed to the Republic of Korea to conduct cybersecurity vulnerability assessments of operational technology (OT), control systems and supervisory control and data acquisition systems on behalf of the Department of the Army. Due to local COVID-19 restrictions, the Advanced Threat Landscape and Simulations (ATLS) team was required to quarantine in barracks at Camp Humphreys for 14 days upon their arrival, a time they got through with the help of local volunteers. Grateful for their support, the team seized the opportunity to pay the kindness forward later in the trip.
  • ERDC partners with Ohio universities to develop solutions for harmful algal bloom problem

  • Using simulation tools for operational readiness in maritime and littoral operations

    Operational readiness is a term used throughout the six branches of the U.S. military. The ability of armed forces to conduct the full range of military operations, regardless of a posed threat, is contingent upon how well units are manned, equipped, trained and led. To increase readiness, researchers at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) have partnered with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps on a joint venture to use ship simulation and numerical models in the planning of amphibious assaults and littoral operations.
  • USACE, James Madison University hold SandSnap event
