Students at Purdue University have developed a new software system for improving efficiency in airport settings called CLASS, which stands for Cargo Loading Automated Storage System. Through robotics and unique computer programs, the cost can be lowered for loading cargo into planes and the amount of time a plane is to be grounded can be greatly reduced. The system was tested in-house with an airplane manufacturer, proving that higher efficiency was achieved with CLASS. CLASS can also be integrated into military and defense applications to improve cargo loading for airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and baggage handlers.

Advantages:
-Fast
-Cost-efficient
-Tracking

Potential Applications:
-Commercial aircraft
-Military/defense
