Improving Asset Visibility & Equipment Accountability

As part of its efforts to improve asset visibility and equipment accountability, the U.S. Marine Corps’ Blount Island Command has evaluated passive RFID technology, and is now applying passive RFID tags to the equipment transported on what are known as maritime prepositioning ships (MPS).

Based on the success of the tests conducted at Blount Island and in Korea, the command is continuing to place passive RFID tags on containers and vehicles for MPS.

“Our goal is to continue to put the tags out there,” Layher states. “We’ve demonstrated that it’s an awesome way to collect data.” In the meantime, he says, the military is required to continue attaching active RFID tags to containers, though Layher predicts that the rule will someday change.
