Abstract : The Georgia Institute of Technology Economic Development Institute in partnership with Durkopp Adler America Inc. of Atlanta endeavored to produce an automatic cargo (bellows) pocket setter system for the attachment of cargo pockets in the manufacture of the Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) ensemble. The project was successful in developing the appropriate modification (style set) for the 805 automatic pocket attachment machine enabling it to attach the lower right and left cargo pockets of the BDU coat. The developments of this project are considered a success and are now commercially available. Durkopp Adler America is able to supply DOD contractors with a reliable pocket attachment machine for BDU coats.
