Army Enlists Odin for RFID

FORT BELVOIR, Va.—The U.S. Army’s Product Manager Joint-Automatic Identification Technology Office for total AIT and RFID solutions has selected Odin Technologies as prime contractor for its passive radio frequency identification (pRFID) contract.

Odin is a provider of RFID solutions, software and services. Along with its partners, SRA, Unisys, KTS Solutions, Intermec, Zebra, Sirit, Oat Systems and IBM, Odin will offer solutions to the joint services through a $75 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract.

“During this past year, we’ve seen a dramatic shift in pRFID solutions; standards have stabilized and technology has greatly improved, leading to surging adoption,” commented Patrick Sweeney of Odin. “The Department of Defense is setting its sights on nothing short of the most efficient supply chain in support of the war fighter. The new pRFID contract provides acquisition support and technical expertise for joint services, federal agencies, NATO and multi-national forces…It’s one-stop-shopping for pRFID.”

The new contract builds on the infrastructure Odin previously installed for the Defense Logistics Agency at all of the Defense distribution centers across the U.S., and the contract also supports specific projects in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force.
