Project Announcement: Mobile pRFID System to Support Depot Maintenance Concept Paper

Several U.S. military partners are interested in introducing passive radio frequency identification (pRFID) systems to their facilities to augment inventory management efforts. These systems must be capable of being mounted on a powered vehicle (e.g., forklifts), reading pRFID tags within a radius of 15 feet, and interfacing with existing pRFID-tag-tracking software systems. Crucially, they must […]
