Odin Technologies has joined with Savi Technology Inc. to create a software platform utilizing both passive and active radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies. The tool is intended to help customers track and manage in real time their items, supply-chain assets and transport conveyances. The companies said they have joined forces to develop a new generation of software that will exploit the full range of RFID and related automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) technologies. The offering is aimed at customers in the aerospace and defense, government, manufacturing, healthcare and IT services industries. It combines the expertise of Savi in active, battery-powered RFID with that of Odin in passive RFID. The combined technology can be applied within the walls of facilities as well as throughout extended supply chains, the companies said. The new offering includes Savi's active RFID SmartChain software suite with Odin's EasyEdge for passive RFID devices, to automate the collection of passive and active RFID data onto a single platform. The suite will be made available with "seamless" modules, the partners said. Savi is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin.
