4 days ago · The terrain analysis system is Braze Mobility’s attempt to take its blind spot sensors, which can be added to any wheelchair and which count the VA as a customer, “to the next step,” Viswanathan says. “Our sensors have been helping users navigate spaces that, otherwise, they’ve struggled with,” she said.
Nov 17, 2021 · Heartland Theatre closes its latest production this weekend, a rendition of Jennifer Blackmer’s 2014 play, “Human Terrain,” based on the real Human Terrain System, an initiative that placed social scientists in military combat units in an effort to understand the culture of the regions where they were deployed.
Nov 05, 2021 · In 2006, the United States Army established the Human Terrain System, a support program intended to improve the military’s ability to understand the socio-cultural differences in the areas in ...
Nov 15, 2021 · Geospatial data analysis can be improved by using data-driven algorithms and techniques from the machine learning field. The aim of our research is to discover interrelationships among topographical data to support the decision-making process. In this paper, we extracted topographical geospatial data from digital elevation model (DEM) raster images, and we discovered hidden patterns among this ...

Military Engineering provides technologies and capabilities to the warfighter to enable force protection and maneuver. This area develops novel, lightweight, rapidly constructed protection systems that can be expediently deployed in remote locations. From the research and development of these innovative protection systems, survivability decision aids have been developed to not only allow for rapid assessment of current protection postures but also to provide enhanced designs to increase defense against attacks. Researchers have designed advanced numerical methods for characterization of blast fragmentation and mitigation on structures and have evaluated the effects of weapon systems based on worldwide building construction material types. Using Department of Defense (DOD) high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities, researchers developed physics-based numerical simulations for evaluation of sensor performance in complex geo-environments and advanced simulation capabilities that al...
This area’s approach is to advance and exploit science and technology to maximize the long-term contributions of the built and natural environments to the Army’s readiness and operational success. Solutions focus on highly sustainable and cost-effective approaches for the lifecycle management of military lands, ranges, and infrastructure. Technologies enhance the warfighter training experience, reduce training land restrictions, improve soldier safety, provide for efficient use of limited resources such as energy and water, and facilitate sustainability planning with local and regional communities.
This area provides environmentally sustainable solutions to the nation’s water resources challenges and helps provide safe and resilient communities and infrastructure. Technologies help manage existing water resources infrastructure sustainably in the face of expected climate change and land use change, invasion by exotic species, demographic shifts, and aging structures. Tools and resources improve the flow of commercial navigation traffic on waterways, rebuilding locks and maintaining channels, reducing the risk of damage to life and property from flooding, and protecting fish and plant life.
The Geospatial Research and Engineering area provides the data, analytic tools, information, and decision framework capabilities to ensure situational awareness of the battlespace environment for the warfighter. It arms soldiers with information superiority so they can accurately and quickly gauge battle-space environment effects on personnel, platforms, sensors, and systems. Research includes terrain analysis for signal and sensor phenomenology, geospatial and temporal information, geospatial reasoning, and imagery and geodata science.
The Engineered Resilient Systems area combines advanced engineering techniques with high-performance computing to develop concepts and tools that significantly amplify design options examined during early stages of the acquisition process. Techniques result in trade spaces that can be generated in hours rather than months and are thousands of times larger and hundreds of times more accurate than those created via traditional methods. Designs are also resilient — systems are dependable, easily modified to meet future mission goals, and possess a predictable lifecycle. Research has been applied to analyses of fixed-wing planes, rotorcraft, ground vehicles, and ships.
Engineers have invented a 3D concrete printer that can create buildings. It can print with multiple different materials including homogeneous materials such as cement paste or heterogeneous materials such as concrete. It uses an additive manufacturing process to “print” semi-permanent structures in a theater of operation. The Automated Construction of Expeditionary Structures (ACES) has the potential to reduce building materials shipped by half and reduce construction manpower requirements by 62% when compared to plywood construction. The Army conducts risk assessments to determine safe levels and cleanup target levels for military relevant compounds (MRCs). ARAMS™ is a highly adaptable, computer-based dynamic modeling and analysis system that can assess future or time-varying human and ecological health risks using measured or predicted exposure data, making it an indispensable resource for those managing sites for compliance and sustainment. ARAMS can also be used to conduct site-...
