ODIN technologies, the leader in the physics of RFID deployments, testing, and optimization software and the United States Department of Defense’s (DOD) Defense Distribution Centers (DDC) accomplished an RFID industry milestone by designing and deploying an extensive RFID network across 69 facilities, on 19 DDC locations in 11 states in under 130 days. DDC is leveraging RFID and Wide Area Workflow capabilities to create enhanced visibility of the location and movement of military assets globally. As the prime contractor, ODIN technologies was responsible for conducting detailed site assessments, selecting equipment, installing and testing the RFID portals to 100% accuracy before they were formally accepted by the Government.

“By expanding our capabilities to receive items tagged with passive RFID, DDC is in compliance with the Department of Defense policy to make DOD distribution centers capable of receiving passive RFID tags as suppliers begin tagging their products in accordance with acquisition regulations,” commented DDC Logistics Operations Policy Division Chief Janet Cravener.

“The DDC team’s unwavering dedication was essential to completing this project on an accelerated schedule. To meet the project speed and RFID accuracy requirements, ODIN worked closely with DDC staff in employing our scientific RFID optimization software, physics expertise and repeatable methodologies. By doing this we were able to deploy the system two months faster than previously planned,” commented Patrick J. Sweeney II, President & CEO of ODIN technologies. “Taking on an RFID initiative of this scope and compressed timeframe clearly demonstrates the DDC’s commitment to the warfighter. By implementing an RFID enabled supply chain, DOD can expect to increase supply visibility, maximize efficiency, and reduce costs. The entire ODIN team is proud to have met such high expectations and looks forward to deploying additional sites around the world in 2007.”
