July/Aug 2009

One industry which truly depends on the efficiency of its equipment is the military, where supplies need to be located quickly and with precision. When the U.S. Dept. of Defense (DoD), www.defenselink.mil, Washington, D.C., drafted the RFID (radio frequency identification) III contract, it selected four contractors to provide products equipped with RFID technology to the U.S. military, U.S. Coast Guard, as well as a number of federal agencies and foreign allies worldwide.

Augusta Systems, www.augustasystems.com, Morgantown, W.Va., will act as subcontractor to Northrop Grumman, www.northropgrumman.com, Los Angeles, Calif., one of the contractors selected. Augusta will provide Northrop with products and associated services from its EdgeFrontier product line, which consists of configurable middleware used in applications including security systems and asset tracking.

The EdgeFrontier products will provide the military and other customers with structured event processing capabilities and configuration of events based on predetermined actions.
