ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 23 (UPI) -- Northrop Grumman has placed its first order for radio-frequency identification technologies with Evigia Systems as part of a U.S. Defense Department contract.

The Northrop Grumman-Evigia team was selected by the Defense Department to provide RFID technologies and engineering services for the tracking and asset management of government supply chains.

Michigan-based RFID hardware-products developer Evigia announced it received Northrop Grumman's first order for its RFID technologies as part of the Defense Department deal.

"We are committed to the (Defense Department's) desire for an open-standard architecture and increased product diversity in the active RFID marketplace," Navid Yazdi, Evigia chief executive, said in a statement.

"Furthermore, Evigia being part of a team of highly capable companies being primed by Northrop Grumman enables us to deliver a formidable product and solution platform that appropriately addresses (Defense Department) needs."
