Abstract:

It would be a fair argument to say that there is perhaps no invention that has had as much impact on the world as that of the Internet. The Internet, however, was conceived in the minds of government employees. Just as government influenced the development of the Internet, the same can be said of Radio Frequency Identification RFID Technology. The Department of Defense DoD had a very large impact on the development of RFID. Many DoD funded projects and experiments helped pave the way for and significantly influenced the development of RFID technology. This project examines the extent of that DoD influence and shows the correlation between DoD and RFID developments in the civilian sector. From Defense projects in minefield location to tracking containers in ships on the high seas in support of the war on terror, this project explains how specific government sponsored projects had a direct influence on the current state of RFID technology.
