Ann Arbor, Michigan – Cybernet Systems Corporation, a leading defense, robotics, engineering, cyber security and simulation systems development company, today announced award of an IDIQ with the US Army for Automated Tactical Ammunition Classification Systems (ATACS) and Small Brass Sorters (SBS) that includes task order for eight new machines, upgrades for fielded machines, and systems support.
ATACS machines inspect turn-in small caliber rounds from 50 cal down to 4.6mm for as-manufactured quality, corrosion, and round lot/size/type. Reclaimed turn-in rounds are re-lotted for use in training saving millions of dollars per month for the Army bases employing the technology. SBS machines perform Army mandated visual inspection of spend cartridges and cases so that they can be resold or reused. The case is the single most expensive part of small caliber munitions so this inspection supports the dual goals of allowing the Army to safely resell spent cartridges to defray other expenses and assures that cases to be sold a fully spent and safe for reuse.
