EVERETT, Wash., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has contracted Intermec Inc. for the company's rugged mobile computer technologies for combat theater inventory accountability and tracking.

Washington state-based Intermec was contracted to support the Army's Property Book Unit Supply Enhanced system with its CK61G rugged mobile computers and PM4i barcode printers.

The PBUSE system is the Army's Internet-based property tracking system. Officials say Intermec's ruggedized computer technologies will globally automate the accountability process for the PBUSE.

"For over 20 years, Intermec has worked alongside the U.S. Army as a trusted adviser to help develop and deliver logistical support tools to our troops on the ground," Patrick Byrne, Intermec president and chief executive officer, said in a statement.

"We're proud to be able to help the Army meet their critical inventory needs and simplify their workload, both on the base and in the battlefield."
