The U.S. Army has issued a request for information on how to transform an existing supply support activity warehouse at Fort Hood, Texas, into a state-of-the-art facility with automated and robotic systems.
A SAM notice posted Monday says the Army envisions a model SSA that uses modern technology such as artificial intelligence to help accelerate supply chain processes during wartime, garrison and field missions.
The service branch wants an automated warehouse to increase efficiency across receipt, packing, labeling, distribution and inventory management functions.
The Army added it expects robotic or automated handling platforms to carry 95 percent of the SSA facility's 4,458 unique inventory items, support planographic structures and function in various operational environments.
Interested parties may submit input to the branch through Dec. 22.
