RFID Capabilities for National Defense
For a variety of enterprise organizations, RFID-enabled solutions provide a wealth of advantages from improving operations to saving costs. However, when it comes to military and national defense, RFID solutions can also play a vital part in helping a country’s overall efforts to maintain its security — domestically and abroad. RFID’s capabilities with regard to national defense include:
- Data from virtually all military assets that can be filtered by part number, serial number, condition code, next inspection date, due-in date and several other criteria
- Passive RFID tags that can be read reliably at a range of up to 100 feet
- Critical resource tracking and security endeavors that can be efficiently managed, while complying with stringent legal requirements, such as Sarbanes-Oxley regulations
- Ability to operate both on metal and non-metal assets utilizing handheld scanners integrated with a software platform providing inventory visibility and reporting capabilities
- Improvement in both the reliability and efficiency of critical military supply chains — especially with assets that are deployed in theater
HID’s RFID technologies provide a complete, customized, end-to-end solution from design, hardware procurement, custom software installation, SAP integration services and operator training.

RFID National Defense Customer Success Stories
Specialty RFID Products to the United States Marine Corps
The US Marine Corps wanted an RFID solution for tracking assets being shipped back from the war in Afghanistan, including high value rolling stock, containers and vehicles.
HID worked with CDO Technologies to develop various passive tagging solutions to deliver visibility and status data complying with the high standards required by the US military.
The result? Tracking, locating and managing assets with high accuracy, and saving time and money while achieving full visibility of asset arrival, departure and maintenance with verifiable records.
RFID Asset Management Solution for Data Center & Lab Equipment
ASA sought a fast, accurate and cost-effective way to track and identify both data center and highly mobile laboratory assets across multiple locations. Barcodes utilized were hard to see, let alone read.
HID with systems integrator partner DataSpan recommended a passive UHF RFID tag solution incorporating both metal and non-metal assets, teamed with handheld scanners with inventory visibility and reporting capabilities. The solution can be scaled across multiple sites.
The result? Faster asset inventories and 100% accuracy in mobile lab asset audits. The cost and process efficiencies gave NASA ROI in less than 18 months.
