  Defense/Aerospace:
Case Study—Military Sensors Monitor the World

The U.S. Army has been testing the use of temperature sensor-equipped RFID tags for automated shelf life management of perishable military rations. Its research and development team also is leveraging both passive and active RFID for total asset visibility, supply chain security and food safety throughout storage and distribution. The Army will share the lessons learned from several projects that include RFID sensor based container security devices.
Speaker:
  Stephen M. Moody, RFID Program Coordinator, Combat Feeding
     Directorate, Natick Soldier Research Development & Engineering
     Center, U.S. Army
Takeaways:
. How active and passive RFID can be used to enhance supply chain security
. The use of RFID for shelf life management
