Abstract:

This report describes the full scope of the Department of Defense DoD Radio Frequency Identification RFID activities with the purpose of identifying RFID-related issues specific to the Defense Logistics Agency DLA. It summarizes DoD Components status in implementing DoD RFID policy requirements, new DoD uses of active RFID, and progress in the use of passive RFID in the DoD supply chain. The report also addresses relevant standards and RFID training activities. There are several issues for DLA relating to the use of both active and passive RFID. These range from programmatic concerns regarding the need for a common RFID system architecture to practical concerns about the performance impact of reduced power levels. The report recommends actions that may allow potential benefits of emerging RFID technology to streamline DLA operations.
