Savi, a Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) company and leading provider of wireless supply chain and asset management solutions, today announced the release of a new white paper that focuses on asset management technologies, challenges and solutions for enterprises in public sector and commercial markets.

- Part One is an introduction to supply chain assets and AIDC technologies, including RFID
- Part Two addresses U.S. and international defense logistics and RFID in the 21st century; Part Three focuses on chemical industry supply chains, asset types and asset management
