Intermec Targets Government Suppliers with RFID Educational Summit

3/22/2004 - Intermec Technologies Corp. announced it will host a government-focused RFID educational summit March 18, 2004, in Arlington, Virginia, designed specifically for government suppliers. The educational session will address the most significant RFID (radio frequency identification) issues suppliers face today: establishing the value of what RFID can provide, understanding various specifications behind RFID tag and reader technology and becoming familiar with applications and standards that will prepare government suppliers for RFID programs. In addition, Gary Orem, team leader for information technology at the Social Security Administration, will present a real-world RFID implementation case study.

The program, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., will focus on central RFID issues, including a technology overview, a comparison of frequencies and distances, global regulations and requirements, site surveys, tag selection and mounting, system integration and standard updates. In addition, Intermec will present government RFID implementation case studies, including Fort McPherson’s RFID base access security program and the NEXUS RFID-powered U.S. border-crossing program.

“Government suppliers want the facts about RFID, pure and simple,” said Intermec Vice President Scott Medford. “This unbiased educational seminar gives attendees the ability to separate fact from fiction without fear of a sales pitch, helping them select and implement RFID technology that will provide the most value to their supply chain.”

RFID, a complement to current bar code-based tracking systems, allows companies to automatically track inventory throughout an entire supply chain. Intermec RFID already is at work throughout the world, deployed in wide-ranging applications that include inventory and asset management, access control, compliance tracking, and personnel and vehicle identification.
