US Army Corps of Engineers Reachback Operations Center

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

Providing Relevant Solutions to the Armed Forces and the NationThe USACE Reachback Operation Center at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) provides a [HTML_REMOVED]reachback[HTML_REMOVED] engineering capability in support of contingency across the full operational and natural disaster spectrum.[HTML_REMOVED] The UROC is able to rapidly leverage the Corps[HTML_REMOVED] extensive resources to support deployed forces or personnel requiring specialized assistance.Linking Forces to Problem-Solving ExpertsDeployed troops are linked to Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) within the government, private industry, or academia to obtain solutions to complex problems. Personnel may contact the UROC for reachback support using the UROC[HTML_REMOVED]s Reachback Engineer Data Integration (REDi) website, phone, email, or UROC[HTML_REMOVED]s satellite based TeleEngineering Communication Equipment.Engineering ExpertiseThe UROC responds to incoming requests for information (RFIs) in topic areas such as:Bridge Military Load Classification (MLC) Airfield Design and RepairDam Breach and Hydrology AnalysisTrafficability (On or Off Road)Geological informationClimate information and analysis Force Protection / SurvivabilityBomb Damage AssessmentCritical Infrastructure AssessmentBase Camp Development engineering, master planning and facilitiesInnovative DevelopmentUROC personnel have designed and produced several Field Force Engineering tools to enhance the capabilities available to DoD forces. [HTML_REMOVED]These include:The Automated Route Reconnaissance Kit (ARRK) [HTML_REMOVED]incorporates a GPS, video camera, and inertial measurement unit to provide an automated collection and processing capability for on-the-move reconnaissance, supporting both ground and airborne platforms. This system has supported numerous military operations and natural disaster response missions.TeleEngineering Communication Equipment-Deployable (TCE-D) [HTML_REMOVED] provides assured communication to execute reachback. Leverages COTS technology in a UROC integrated solution to provide internet access, secure and nonsecure VTC and data transfer using approved encryption.[HTML_REMOVED] The system is a critical component when communication infrastructure is unavailable.Reachback Engineer Data Integration (REDi)[HTML_REMOVED] website provides a common database, mapping tool, and robust user interface for submitting, managing, tracking and archiving all data and reachback support managed through the UROC related to theengineer reachback process and the Field Force Engineering program.[HTML_REMOVED] An array of hand-held data collection devices are being accessed for integration to the REDi.
