September 12, 2004—Savi Technology's contract to supply the U.S. Department of Defense with RFID tags, readers, and supporting infrastructure will be increased by more than 100%, from $90 million to $207 million.

Bids from RFID companies hoping to supply tags and readers are currently under review. 2007 is when the DOD is pushing to have completely RFID-enabled its supply chain.
