Intermec Named to Provide RFID Technical Engineering Services to U.S. Government
The awards are part of the government's Automatic Information Technology RFID initiative to provide timely asset visibility in its global logistics pipeline, whether in process, in storage or in transit.
Intermec also is prime contractor on a five-year contract to provide an entire range of automatic identification technologies. That contract, administered by the U.S. Army, supplies a complete line of advanced mobile computing, wireless communications, data collection systems and services - all engineered to meet the most demanding military applications and to deliver unparalleled levels of efficiency and productivity - to all federal agencies and branches of the U.S. Dept. of Defense worldwide.
RFID, a complement to current bar code-based inventory and asset tracking systems, allows companies and organizations to automatically track inventory throughout an entire supply chain. RFID automatic data collection systems typically do not require line of sight or manual scanning as do most bar code-based systems. The government has made implementation of RFID a top AIT priority, to improve inventory tracking and logistics management.
Intermec Technologies Corp., a UNOVA Inc. (NYSE:UNA) company, develops, manufactures and integrates technologies that identify, track and manage supply chain assets. Core technologies include Intellitag® RFID, mobile computing systems, bar code printers and label media. The company's products and services are used by customers in many industries worldwide to improve the productivity, quality and responsiveness of business operations.
