The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has developed several active RFID solutions for the tracking of radioactive materials, other hazardous materials, personnel and local environmental conditions. The system can also be used to optimize chain-of-custody monitoring for packaged nuclear materials as they are being stored, processed and transported. The DOE will share how several of its national laboratories are working on additional projects and provide insights into RFID’s business benefits.
