DIG Program Focus Areas
The Dredging Innovations Group (DIG) was formed to address identified gaps in solution development and deployment, technical implementation support, and program-level services in the scopes of existing USACE Dredging Operations Programs. DIG leverages current R&D products and engages USACE interests through the Dredging Operations Technical Support (DOTS) Program and the Navigation Community of Practice to provide technology development and deployment, actionable program information and implementable strategies.
The DIG program was started in 2012, and since that time has provided support for research efforts across multiple ERDC laboratories and USACE Districts. Through close partnerships with researchers and practitioners, the DIG program continues to publish technical notes and technical reports, and implement solutions to assist the USACE dredging program.
