A new high tech system designed in Oklahoma is being used in the war in Iraq

Updated:
The new high tech system comes in the form of an ATACS ammunition sorting machine. ATACS is short for Automated Tactical Ammunition Classification System.

It sorts small caliber ammunition which was previously done by hand. The system, which is used in Kuwait, was designed at the Defense Ammunition Center outside McAlester. Project manager Bruce Ramm: "All the work we do, it's all related to helping our young men and women perform the duties that they are supposed to do. It gives you a sense of pride in it.”

The machine sorts 100,000 rounds of ammunition in one eight hour shift. The US Army used to have 40 soldiers assigned to the duty.
