    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.
  • 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.
