Science Applications International Corporation has installed a passive radio frequency identification system at the National Center for Employment of the Disabled (NCED) in Texas.
The installation involved the design, installation and implementation of a pRFID system for inventory tracking, accountability and Department of Defense compliance.
NCED said that the installation of RFID at its facilities was intended to provide increased visibility in its production operations, quality assurance and shipping areas. The project will also help it meet new compliance requirements for pRFID imposed by the federal government.
The centre employs more than 4,000 disabled and disadvantaged workers who manufacture many department of defense apparel-related products such as chemical protection suits and battledress uniforms, in addition to corrugated products for sale to commercial and industrial clients as well as federal agencies.
