The Brightest Star

The Mojix STAR system was voted the best new product at RFID Journal LIVE! because it has extended the limits of passive UHF systems.

Jun 18, 2008— Award Winner: Best in Show

June 1, 2008—On April 18, RFID Journal presented the second annual RFID Journal Awards to three companies for outstanding achievement in radio frequency identification technology at RFID Journal LIVE! 2008, our sixth annual conference and exhibition.

The award recipients are (from left to right): Carlo K. Nizam, head of value-chain visibility and RFID for Airbus; Nancy Fréchette, VP of Agence métropolitaine de transport; and Chung Hsien Zah, director of InterfaceFlor's analytical labs. Photograph by Tom Hurst.

The award winners are:
Airbus for best RFID implementation
InterfaceFlor for most innovative use of RFID
Agence métropolitaine de transport for best use of RFID in a service

You can read about each company's RFID project—and see why the company is being honored—in the case studies linked to the above company names. Each story is unique, highlighting the many ways RFID can be implemented, and each shows how RFID can be used profitably today.

In addition, Mojix took the award for the best new RFID product. The Mojix STAR (Space Time Array Reader) system—which we introduced in an exclusive story in the March/April 2008 issue while the company was still in stealth mode (see Product Developments)—was demonstrated at RFID Journal LIVE! and more details were revealed. In addition, end users who have tested the system say STAR lives up to its potential.

STAR shined as it interrogated EPC Gen 2 passive ultrahigh-frequency tags from across the exhibit hall—a distance of about 300 feet, in a room full of RF energy from exhibitors demonstrating products.
