US DoD order for RFID asset tracking systems

RFID Global Solution : 15 January, 2009  (Application Story)
RFID based asset tracking and management system order placed on RFID Global Solution by American defence department
RFID Global Solution has been selected by the US Department of Defence (DoD) to provide RFID solutions and services under RFID III on the Savi Prime Contract.

RFID III is an indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract established by the US army on behalf of all services valued at $428 million for active Radio Frequency Identification hardware, software and engineering services. The competitively bid RFID III contract, administered by the US army's Product Manager Joint-Automatic Identification Technology (PM J-AIT) office, is open to purchase orders from other US Federal agencies and allied defence forces. The initial three-year ordering period is scheduled to begin in early 2009.

RFID III calls for state-of-the-art active RFID products that provide 'logistics tracking, locating and health monitoring of commodities and assets," and which are compliant with ISO 18000-7:2008 standards to enable interoperability among government users. RFID Global Solution, along with its partner Savi Technology, will offer active RFID solutions and design, planning and implementation services to the Joint Services.

"RFID Global Solution earned its stripes designing and deploying leading-edge RFID solutions for the Department of Defence. RFIDGS personnel have been deploying solutions around the globe for the DoD with Savi Technology since 1996," said Joseph Leone, President and CTO of RFID Global Solution. 'RFID Global is proud to be chosen to continue its heritage as the leading RFID defence integrator, on the mission to provide state-of-the-art automatic identification capabilities anywhere in the world. RFIDGS will work in unison with Savi to provide best of breed solutions."

'We're honoured that Savi's proven technology solutions continue to earn the trust of the DoD through the RFID III contract,' said David Stephens, chief executive officer of Savi Technology. 'We are fully dedicated to continuing to deliver innovative products and solutions, along with RFID Global Solution, that support the DoD's objectives and critical operations to enhance the visibility, management and health of vital assets throughout the supply chain.'

RFID Global Solution and Savi have a proven track record of successful active RFID deployments. RFID Global Solution has successfully deployed RFID solutions for the US Army's Rapid Deployment Centre, Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, Defence Information Systems Agency, and Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, among others. Savi is the leading provider of active, battery-powered RFID products and solutions to the US DoD, providing products and solutions to the DoD for more than a dozen years through the RFID I and RFID II contracts. RFID Global Solution and Savi helped build the DoD's In-Transit Visibility network, which is the world's largest active RFID-based cargo tracking system spanning more than 4,000 nodes across more than 40 countries. Savi's RFID-based solutions support focused logistics, Total Asset Visibility (TAV) and integrated global supply chains for all US military services.
