ODIN Announced as Cornerstone Sponsor of RFID Journal's First 'RFID in Defense' Event
The conference, focusing on how companies in the defense industry can benefit from utilizing active and passive RFID systems, is to be held near Washington, D.C., on Nov. 30, 2010.
Sep 21, 2010—RFID Journal announced today that ODIN, a leading RFID software and solutions provider, will be the cornerstone sponsor of the first RFID in Defense event, to be held on Nov. 30, 2010, at the Doubletree Hotel Washington DC-Crystal City, in Arlington, Va. The conference will focus on how companies in the defense industry can benefit from utilizing active and passive RFID systems.
"We are pleased that ODIN is supporting this new event, which will address issues related to the use of RFID in this unique sector," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "ODIN has been involved in some of the biggest projects undertaken by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), so the company is uniquely suited to inform attendees about how they can leverage the technology to improve business processes."
Companies that supply goods and equipment to the U.S. military, as well as those focused on supply chain security, have been exploring active and passive RFID technologies to improve supply chain visibility. RFID in Defense will deliver end-user case studies that reveal how the DOD and its partners are leveraging RFID successfully.
ODIN has experience deploying both active and passive systems. In 2006, the firm was awarded a contract by the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to outfit the DOD's worldwide network of distribution centers with passive RFID. Under the terms of the contract, the company RFID-enabled 70 facilities throughout the United States in fewer than 130 days (see DOD Grants ODIN $14.6 Million Contract). ODIN has also worked with Airbus to deploy passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) and active ultra-wideband (UWB) technologies (see Airbus Hires ODIN Technologies for RFID Deployments).
"In more than 300 completed RFID projects, ODIN has addressed many of the challenges commercial and military organizations face in implementing RFID," says Patrick J. Sweeney II, ODIN's founder and CEO. "The ODIN team looks forward to helping end users learn from this experience and avoid common RFID pitfalls. We encourage companies to attend this event, to talk to us and to learn how RFID can dramatically improve the way they do business."
The conference will explore how all types of RFID technologies—active, Wi-Fi, passive UHF, passive high-frequency (HF) and more—can be used to improve operations in the defense sector. Like all RFID Journal events, RFID in Defense will feature leading end users objectively explaining how they employ radio frequency identification to enhance efficiencies and streamline business processes.
"RFID Journal events are known for providing objective case studies from end users and highly informative presentations by experts who have hands-on experience with RFID," Roberti says. "We're confident that those who attend this event will attain a deeper understanding of how companies in the defense sector can use RFID to cut costs, improve security, streamline processes and boost profits."
