Armored-Vehicle Maker Uses RFID-Enabled Tracking System

Navistar Defense, which manufactures armored vehicles designed to withstand roadside bombs and other threats, is employing an RFID-enabled real-time location system (RTLS) to help ensure the vehicles are delivered on time to U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
WhereNet is providing the RTLS, which is being used to help Navistar Defense track, in real time, each MaxxPro MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle as it is assembled, from the time a chassis is delivered to the company's West Point, Miss., manufacturing facility through the assembly and inspection processes and on to when an MRAP is shipped off to war.
