Automatic Identification Technology (AIT)

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Supply Chain Integration) is responsible for leading the implementation of a modern and integrated materiel supply chain process that fully supports military operational requirements. The end goal of this initiative is to promote customer confidence in the DoD logistics process by building a responsive, cost-effective capacity to provide required products and services to the Warfighter.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology addresses key DoD challenges of lacking asset visibility and transportation process inefficiency between nodes in the DoD supply chain. Alone and when combined with other AIT capabilities, RFID will become a key technology enabler for the DoD logistics business transformation by facilitating accurate, hands-free data capture within an integrated end-to-end supply chain enterprise.
