New sessions at EPCglobal NA's fifth annual event, being held Oct. 14-16 in Chicago, will highlight the DOD's successful EPC projects and help educate its suppliers about the benefits of using EPC RFID technologies.
CEO Tom Grant says the latest round of funding will help the company continue to develop custom RFID solutions and UHF passive-tag readers for specific applications.
The company says it is positioning itself as a one-stop supplier of the technology underpinning UHF readers and passive tags, and that it will not compete with interrogator manufacturers using the R1000 chip.
The International Journal of RF Technologies: Research and Applications, edited by the RFID Research Center's Bill Hardgrave, is seeking academic papers for its first issue, slated for publication later this year.
