Abstract : Since DLA has a mission of storing and handling hazardous materials in our depots and disposal sites, there are some areas of potential application of robotics for the sake of safety and health of our employees. The author concludes that: (1) DLA's investment in robotics equipment will be primarily in support of automated/mechanized materials handling systems, and (2) Since DLA is oriented towards buying off-the-shelf equipment, whatever is available in robotics equipment as a proven materials handling device will be considered for application in our depots.
