Savi has been named the single awardee in the final option year of the US DoD RFID-IV contract, the company announced on 22 May.

The contract extension is valid through 7 April 2019. The original RFID-IV award followed the $204 million issued by the DoD in September 2013 to support the Product Director Automated Movement and Identification Solutions mission.

Under the contract with a ceiling value of $102 million, Savi will provide the DoD, other agencies and allied partners with a range of hardware, software and integration services including RFID sensors, readers, and real-time location systems for asset tracking and in-transit visibility for locating and monitoring assets worldwide.

In the second and final option year of the RFID-IV contract, Savi is introducing a lighter, portable, deployment kit with advance electronics.

Savi is the only company to be selected as a prime contractor on all four of the RFID-named contracts (RFID-I, -II, -III and –IV), the company said.

Rosemary Johnston, senior VP government operations, Savi Technology, said: ‘As the DoD begins the process for the RFID-V contract, we are excited to share our next-generation technology, which expands reach by providing alternatives to aRFID "last known read" capabilities and also brings with it substantial cost savings.’
