Apr 17, 2014This presentation will discuss topics related to the Department of Defense's (DoD) use of automatic identification technology (AIT), including radio frequency identification (RFID). The session will highlight DoD's strategic focus on enhancing asset visibility in a manner that provides the ability to track assets throughout their lifecycle, and to transform asset data into actionable information supporting logistics decisions and improved customer confidence. DoD continues to incorporate passive RFID to enhance business processes, and many of those passive RFID use cases will be addressed. Current and future expectations for active RFID and satellite transponders will also be discussed, including the status of DoD's migration to the ISO/IEC 18000-7 standard. The presenter will share DoD's ongoing research, development and testing of long-range passive RFID.
