ATACS

In late 2004, the Army determined that it needed a method and the technology to rapidly inspect and sort large quantities of returned small arms ammunition of all calibers.

With Defense Ammunition Center (DAC) direction and oversight, Cybernet applied their modular vision-based inspection technology to the Army inspection problem and delivered a fully functional prototype to the operational theater, in less than 90 days.

A pile of ammo waits to be sorted by Cybernet’s Automated Tactical Ammunition Classification System (ATACS), which can inspect up to 100,000 rounds of 5.56 mm, 7.62 mm, 9 mm, .45 caliber and .50 caliber per day, detecting defects such as dents, perforations and corrosion. This system significantly reduces the manpower required to handle loose, broken lot ammunition and provides faster, more consistent inspection.
