U.S. Navy to Deploy Venture Research MultiTrak™ RFID/GPS/IoT Reader

December 11, 2018 – Venture Research, Inc., a leading global supplier of RFID and IoT solutions, has received a contract through the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) to supply mobile passive radio frequency identification (pRFID) systems for the U.S. Navy to use at four geographically diverse sites. The goal of this initiative is to evaluate the performance of an asset tracking solution combining the MultiTrak mobile pRFID reader with its integrated geo-positioning capability with a customizable application programming interface (API), enabling the U.S. military to reliably capture asset tracking information on a large scale.

Both military and commercial inventory management operations are contingent on being able to uniquely identify, quantify, and locate critical assets. Previously, industry solutions for RFID deployments have not offered a hardened mobile system capable of being mounted on a forklift or other vehicle with an integrated geo-positioning solution. This capability is critical to reducing costs and increasing efficiency for large-scale material management operations that occur at the Navy piers every day.

“We are pleased to be working with NCMS and the U.S. Navy to accurately track military and commercial assets through our unique solution that will improve inventory traceability and reduce wasted labor hours due to lost items,” said John Baker, president of Venture Research. “The American tax payer will also see cost savings resulting from this implementation due to improved accuracy and reduction of redundant inventory.”

“The Venture Research API and integrated mobile pRFID solution, which will be utilized under stringent military requirements, will offer significant promise for military, commercial, and consumer applications,” said NCMS Project Manager, Nicholas Brown. “The successful deployment of this system is expected to yield operational improvements that will be applicable beyond Navy pier asset management and intermediate support efforts. The MultiTrak solution will encompass a variety of large-scale material management operations.”
