Based on international standards, UID was adopted by DOD to improve asset management by monitoring defense related equipment during their lifecycle. Such equipment included operating materials, Government Furnished Property (GFP) and any personal property issued on or after January 2004. The use of this labeling technique has since extended beyond the ...

RFID Companies | System Integrators

RFID companies, including system integrators, help defense suppliers navigate the complex landscape of military standards,  DOD initiatives and contract requirements.  They help suppliers meet the often substantial compliance burden that comes with RFID labeling, data management and WAWF reporting.

The companies of the RFID industry fall roughly into several categories.

  • RFID printer manufacturers and their dealers
  • Developers of label printing, RFID data management and reporting software
  • Automated RFID data collection systems dealers
  • System integrators, which combine all of the above

Fortunately, for most defense ...

Mil-Std-129 Revision R Simplifies Labeling

Mil-Std-129 Revision R represents some major changes to the bar code label formats currently in use by defense contractors. The DOD’s transition to life cycle management of serialized items with item unique identification (IUID/UID) has driven many of these changes from Mil-Std-129P, Change 4, which Revision R has superseded.

There is an upside for defense contractors. Revision R eliminates the myriad linear bar codes that crowded labels under the previous MS-129P. The linear barcodes for NSN, CAGE, CLIN, contract, ...
