DoD Extends RFID Contract

ODIN technologies (Dulles, Va.) a supplier of RFID for solution design, deployment and optimization software, announced that the Department of Defense, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has exercised the first option year of the current contract for passive RFID implementation at DLA's distribution centers worldwide. The Option Year 1 project is worth up to $3.8 million in the continued roll-out of RFID capabilities at the DCs.

A key objective of this contract is to enable all DCs outside the continental United States to receive incoming shipments with passive RFID tags. The contract will enable the use of passive RFID tags broadly within the military supply chain overseas. The sites include Korea, Japan, Guam, Hawaii, Germany and Italy. This initiative follows the successful implementation of RFID in 71 DC buildings within the continental United States in under 130 days during the summer of 2006.

"This contract extension reinforces ODIN's leadership in large scale global deployments and reinforces the need for a specialized partner to drive value," said Patrick J. Sweeney II, president and CEO of ODIN technologies.
