Applying RFID Systems to Military Defense Departments

Military Defense departments across Canada and the U.S. are responsible for providing the tools to maintain the order and safety of their country and their community, at home and abroad. The weapons, equipment, and resources that they provide are what make or break the reputation and fortitude of the military.

GAO RFID understands that there is a rising need at Defense Departments for solutions to tackle the common challenges faced by military service organizations such as:

  • Managing Equipment
  • Managing Inventory
  • Managing Personnel
  • Controlling Access

Defense departments are continuously striving to become more cost-effective and business-focused. Our experience in customizing RFID solutions may be able to help provide an automated and improved way of monitoring the most important aspects of the industry.

Exploring RFID for the Defense Industry

In order to ensure a country’s safety, it’s crucial that the tools, facilities, and resources that military service personnel are provided are available when required. In order to achieve the highest-level possible of safety and keep the quality of military resources high, it’s important to have an effective tracking system for all personal and available resources. GAO RFID’s experience in customizing the capabilities of RFID can be used to explore and develop solutions to ensure maximum security and efficiency in all aspects of Defense Services.

Applying Asset Tracking

Organizations in the defense industry have a lot of valuable equipment to keep track of: from the ammunition that soldiers carry to the uniforms, kit, and food that they bring with them, keeping track of these items while soldiers are on exercises, missions, and other military events is crucial.

Everything from identification, to forms, and documentation are an important part of running an effective military institution. If these forms of documentation aren’t properly kept track of, chaos is inevitable, and leads to certain inefficiencies in the organization.

With our experience in deploying RFID technology to track assets in various industries, a way to ensure that equipment is properly taken care of may be developed, thereby preventing the loss or damage of equipment. Upon it’s implementation, it will also make it easy to locate documents quickly and efficiently, while keeping documentation safe, visible, and easily accessible.

Applying People Tracking

Managing personnel is an important part of maintaining safety in a military services institution, as it is essential to keep track of staff and visitors as they go in and out of the building. With the knowledge we have gained from using RFID to track people, we can explore a way to monitor every tag to verify the identity of visitors and employees, pinpoint peoples’ locations, and provides maximum visibility and security throughout the building.

Applying Access Control

Security is crucial, in order to protect not only personnel, but military assets as well. In order to maintain security, it’s important to keep outsiders out and authorized personal and military assets secure. By using the fundamentals of RFID technology for access control, we may be able to provide a great way to control access to designated areas on base and make sure that only authorized personnel are wandering the premises. We may be able to develop a solution that allows your security team the opportunity to maintain a database of employee and visitor activity, and control access to designated facilities.

Integrating with Your Defense Services System

By combining our RFID expertise and your organizations’ experience and existing systems, we are confident that we can demonstrate a way in which RFID can empower you to make your organization safer and efficient for all the staff at your defense services system. The developed system can be deployed as a standalone solution or can be integrated with other software solutions, according to each customer’s needs.

At the core of our solution is GAO RFID’s AUTO-ID Engine, which incorporates middleware and essential RFID functions that perform RFID data collection and information processing. Our AUTO-ID Engine seamlessly integrates with a wide variety of defence systems so that you can access the data it collects directly via the system or systems you currently have in place.

Our team of professionals will use our hardware and system integration expertise to integrate the GAO RFID Solution with your IT architecture. The result will be an RFID solution that is seamlessly unified with your defense management system.

We can work with you to integrate the RFID tracking data collected from our custom solution with today’s leading information management systems in your industry.
