An automated system that monitors the movement of weapons and munitions in an armory as well as their condition has been tested by the Navy in a pilot program.
DENVER, Feb. 26 -- A new weapons maintenance system that remotely manages, diagnoses and tracks weapons and munitions has been pilot program tested by the U.S. Navy. The system -- RuBee Weapon Shot Counter -- was developed by Lockheed Martin and Visible Assets Inc. It automates the weapons and munitions tracking process and holds the promise of saving the Navy millions of dollars.
