Star Systems Int'l Provides 1.2 Million Headlamp Tags to Dominican Republic

Star Systems International (SSI), an RFID hardware, tag and professional services provider based in Hong Kong, has announced that it has completed a sale of 1.2 million passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) headlamp transponders for deployment in the Dominican Republic. SSI partnered with Thomas Copel, a high-security printing firm that provides checks, bonds, financial certificates, and student records in that country. Recently, Thomas Copel has integrated digital security and RFID products within its product mix, according to the two companies.

This fall, the transponders, which comply with the ISO 18000-6C standard, will be installed on every motorcycle in the Dominican Republic, SSI reports. A tracking system will use the transponders to help enforce compliance with the annual vehicle-registration process.

"With this successful deployment of our RFID tags in motorcycles, we foresee many new applications being developed for both public and private sectors. This is a notable accomplishment for the Dominican Republic, Thomas Copel and Star Systems International," said Ricardo Sanchez, Thomas Copel's commercial director, in the statement. "Partnering with world-class technology experts like SSI has allowed us to build our own local and solid RFID platform in the benefit of our country. SSI's level of product knowledge and passion for quality along with Thomas Copel's desire to implement a leading edge system here are great differentiators for our business."
