Some of the war images you've seen may show technology built here in Wichita.

When the military goes to work in Iraq, it's getting a helping hand from a company in Wichita.

Electromech Technologies is a sub-contractor nearly doubling its work for the military.

Electromech builds motors that move rocket launchers into place. Now, it's building a new motor to help filter out nuclear, biological or chemical hazards from our troops. The new motor will help troops breath when they put on their large chemical suits.

Military orders have practically doubled recently, supplying parts for the war.

In their prototype shop, they design new ideas for the Bradley fighting vehicles and even troop transports that could face chemical warfare.

In the technology center, they have new things on the drawing board, new technologies they'll sell to the government, because the military is on the lookout for new things to help better fight the war.

Electromech also has a new fan, to filter out chemicals, that is still in the design-testing phase, but the military has already ordered hundreds for its tanks.

The Wichita shop makes all kinds of motors and blowers to go into military vehicles, tanks, and even Blackhawk helicopters.
