Savi today announced its RFID-IV deal with the United States Department of Defense (DoD).
Savi will become the sole provider to the RFID-IV program under the five-year contract. The RFID contract will support the Product Director Automated Movement and Identification Solutions (PD AMIS) mission of DoD.
Savi will provide hardware and software products including active Radio Frequency Identification (aRFID) sensors, readers, Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), Satellite Communication (SATCOM) and related solutions for global asset planning and tracking of personnel, equipment and sustainment cargo worldwide.
The company claims that Savi is the only company to be selected as a prime contractor on all four of the RFID-named contracts (RFID-I, -II, -III) and has now been named the sole provider twice (RFID-II and –IV).
The first three RFID contracts had a combined ceiling of more than $1 billion. Out of this, Savi won more than 97 percent of all awards totaling more than 61 percent of the combined ceiling.
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.
