    The original finding aid described this photograph as: [Complete] Scene Caption: 060809-N-7676W-100 (Aug. 9, 2006)PHOTO of an Office of Naval Research-funded Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) in action at Grand Rapids, Michigan (MI). The ASRS is an automatic shipboard storeroom system that can be configured to store Navy-standard pallets, Joint Modular Intermodal Containers, or any other packaging container, particularly aboard a T-AKE class cargo vessel. The ASRS provides increased throughput, fully selective offloading and workload reduction in a highly reliable, low-maintenance system in high sea state (SS) conditions (SS 5 operating/SS 9 survivability). The demonstrator, currently operating at a simulated eight-degree roll with a three-degree pitch, will be tested later this month aboard a large, medium-speed, roll-on/roll-off ship in Norfolk, Virginia (VA).U.S. Navy official photo by John F.
