New Supported Data Types Key

What kind of avian data does your installation have? Point counts? Linear transects? Or is it more complicated? Check out our new Supported Data Types Key to see if your data are currently supported under the current AKN. Keep checking back as the team is constantly working on new protocols and integrating new data types. Still have questions? Contact a DoD AKN team member today to discuss your data.

Upcoming training opportunities

In the upcoming year, we will be hosting several hands-on, training opportunities in different regions of the country. We will make announcements on this DoD AKN Portal as we finalize locations and dates. Check back often.

We will be delivering another DoD AKN training session at the National Military Fish and Wildlife Association’s (NMFWA) Annual meeting and Training Workshop in St. Louis on March 20, 2023. Sign up for the AKN training at NMFWA will be handled with your NMFWA meeting registration.

New way to sign up for DoD AKN Office Hours

To streamline the process and to view future opportunities, we have created a new calendar and form to sign-up for our DoD AKN Office Hours working sessions. Simply chose an available date and time, add your name, email address, installation, and general topic for assistance. Our new, automated system will confirm your time and will send the applicable log in information.

DoD AKN Portal is live!

The DoD AKN Portal is a one-stop-shop for all things DoD and AKN. We published the first pages in order to get our users familiar with DoD’s approach to the AKN, allow easier access to support, to announce upcoming trainings opportunities, and provide easier navigation to all AKN tools. Check back frequently for updates and announcements. Don’t forget to bookmark this page!
