ID Systems Chooses Unisys to Help Implement RFID Project for U.S. Postal Service

BLUE BELL, Pa -- Unisys Corporation announced it has received a subcontract to support prime contractor I.D. Systems, Inc. with wireless tracking of United Stated Postal Service (USPS) vehicles. I.D. Systems recently announced it had been awarded the USPS contract to implement its Wireless Asset Net(tm) industrial equipment tracking and management systems at postal facilities nationwide.

The new system will help the USPS move mail faster through processing centers, enhance equipment safety, afford management greater visibility of asset utilization and location, and create efficiencies in the USPS supply chain.

Unisys will provide a range of IT infrastructure services, including project management for USPS facility site surveys, systems design and implementation of I.D. Systems' radio frequency identification (RFID)-based technology. During the subcontract's three-year period, the USPS could deploy the system at up to 460 facilities.

Unisys has more than 10 years of wireless tracking experience, including running one of the world's largest RFID-based in-transit visibility networks -- a "factory-to-foxhole" implementation across 1,300 nodes in more than 20 countries for all branches of the U.S. military.
