Federal Signal Technologies company Sirit Corp. ("Sirit"), a global provider of radio frequency identification ("RFID") technology, announced today that it has been awarded a contract with the Defense Logistics Agency ("DLA") utilizing passive Class 1, Generation 2 RFID labels. The DLA is the US Department of Defense's combat logistics support agency. The maximum value of the contract is estimated at US$2.7 million covering one year with two additional one year options. Sirit has passed stringent testing requirements conducted by the DLA and has begun fulfilling orders under this contract.

The contract calls for RFID labels which incorporate Sirit's EPC Class 1 Gen 2 compliant RSI-674 inlay. This inlay is a globally compliant product which offers proven performance in a broad range of applications. The passive RFID labels and ribbons will be deployed for internal and external tracking of materials at all Defense Distribution Center depots across the United States and overseas, with the goal of improving accuracy and speed of processing through the depots' automated Warehouse Management System.

"We are excited to have been chosen by the Defense Logistics Agency to fulfill their requirements for ISO 18000-6C RFID labels and ribbons," said John Freund, President of Sirit. "This is an important program for the government and we look forward to working closely with them in support of this initiative."
