IRVINE, Calif., May 27 (UPI) -- The Defense Logistics Agency at the U.S. Defense Department has selected Sirit to deliver its radio frequency identification labels for materiel tracking.

The estimated $2.7 million award for U.S. company Sirit, a unit of Federal Signal Technologies, follows a successful Defense Logistics Agency capabilities review.

Sirit says its EPC Class 1 Gen 2 compliant RSI-674 inlay will be incorporated with RFID labels integrated with materials at Defense Distribution Center depots in the United States along with other installations for mission-critical tracking applications.

"This is an important program for the government and we look forward to working closely with them in support of this initiative," Sirit President John Freund said in a statement.

The internal and external tracking made possible by the RFID labels with Sirit inlays is part of an initiative by Defense Logistics Agency to improve the Warehouse Management System's accuracy and processing speed capabilities.
