Automated Storage Retrieval Shelf System

This is an interior view of the Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) located at the Defense Visual Information Center. Motion media and still media from all the military services are stored here. The ASRS is an environmentally controlled, self-contained, state-of-the-art, robotics track guided system. It is four stories high and about half the size of a football field. This low angle view was taken from the rear of the ASRS with the camera mounted on the robot arm. A bar-coded bin full of motion picture film is ready to be driven forward.
