Military & Government

For the harshest conditions and the highest performance, we are your go-to partner

When it comes to the government and military, security is of the utmost importance. Whether it’s technology containing classified information or property equipment, many government assets must be tracked and monitored at all times. And these Items can be on the battlefield, in space or scattered through a worldwide logistics supply chain—so they need to be tough enough for very harsh conditions. 

For any asset tracking, including with the Department of Defense mandated UID, there is a high need for visibility of all types of assets, where they are in the supply chain and that the tag fits the unique environment for the lifecycle of the asset.
