Once completely deployed, the Robins AFB RTLS infrastructure will support about three square miles of coverage and track up to ten thousand assets. Success at Robins AFB has lead to follow on project to deploy RTLS in limited scope pilots at additional AFMC Depots. CSC's Automated Identification Technology Support Services contract supports implementation of RFID Logistics Solutions at multiple US Air Force Bases throughout the US. CSC has proven expertise for site surveys, system designs, acquisition of RFID hardware and software, test and installation, user training and technical support. These capabilities provide a single contract vehicle to acquire and integrate RTLS with base operations and automated systems.
Why CSC Chose WhereNet
CSC did extensive market research, has installed and operated several competing technologies, and has selected WhereNet as the primary RTLS technology for three key reasons:
- Proven Success: operating 24/7/30 as a mission critical infrastructure for many of the worlds largest companies.
- Technical Capability: The WhereNet system can be deployed to address many mission areas from tracking assets on a mile long flight line to managing computers in an office environment.
- Open Standards: WhereNet equipment is based on ANSI 371 and ISO 24730 protocols, with tag technology available from a third party with no royalty or license fees.
