Savi Technology will provide radio frequency identification, real-time location systems, satellite communications and related technologies to federal agencies under a potential five-year, $102 million contract.
The company is a prime contractor on all four RFID contracts under the Defense Department‘s Automated Movement and Identification Solutions program, Savu said Wednesday.
This is the second time that the Pentagon has selected Savi as a sole provider under an RFID contract.
“RFID-IV is a crucial element to the AMIS vision of a DoD-wide enterprise that leverages identification and information technologies to enable efficient use of global asset planning and the movement and tracking of personnel, equipment and sustainment cargo from home station to destination and back, ” said Jim Alexander, AMIS product director at Savi.
Savi has awarded subcontracts to businesses such as Intermec by Honeywell, Ubisense and Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC)..
Bill Clark, Savi president and CEO, said the company has been partnering with DoD on automatic identification, transportation and logistics tracking programs for 25 years.
