NATO SEASPARROW Missile Program Selects ODIN for RFID
Health Monitoring Program aimed at reducing cost of maintenance.
Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) March 15, 2011
The NATO SEASPARROW Project Office (NSPO) has selected ODIN as their RFID partner in a new initiative to reduce costs of maintaining the SEASPARROW missiles. The program “Health Monitoring of the ESSM (Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile)” aims to capture temperature, humidity, shock and vibration data from RFID systems. The goal of NSPO is to “provide an optimal project management organization and a forum for international cooperation to effectively support the needs of participating governments and client nations in acquiring, sustaining, and maintaining defense of their forces using SEASPARROW missile variants, associated systems, and evolutions of the missile and system capabilities against today’s and tomorrow’s threats.”
“ODIN is very proud to deploy our RFID software and engineering expertise to the largest and most successful cooperative weapons project in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). With 12 participating governments over the past 41 years in NSPO, the program’s success has been unparalleled. Now they are moving into the next generation of support technology for the warfighter ““ RFID. This is a landmark use of RFID,” commented ODIN founder Patrick J. Sweeney II. “ODIN’s experience tracking all manner of items from nuclear weapons to heart catheters is what will make this successful.”
“ODIN has earned a reputation for its first-rate tracking services and I congratulate them on their new partnership with NATO,” said Virginia Congressman Jim Moran. “ODIN is a good example of a Virginia company delivering smart solutions for global demands. This RFID program will provide a high-quality accounting system that could save taxpayer dollars in maintenance costs on tactical missiles.”
Tracking missiles and any critical armament can only be accomplished with a very high degree of physics expertise for two reasons:
1. To get highly accurate results in very austere conditions
2. To protect against accidental detonation by meeting stringent Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO) compliance
ODIN is the leader in RFID software and solutions for healthcare, government, IT Assets and social media. ODIN’s software is deployed on over 3,500 devices worldwide providing 99.9% accuracy based on physics of RFID. ODIN’s EasyEdgeÃ¢“¢ software is the only true operating system ““ the heartbeat of any RFID deployment. The EasyTAPÃ¢“¢ software appliance with more than ten patents for its innovative algorithms is the central nervous system for RFID. Together they increase accuracy and scalability while reducing integration and support costs. Global corporations in fifty countries leverage ODIN’s expert engineers and patented RFID software to achieve accuracy, speed, and visibility for their RFID deployments.
What makes ODIN’s software and solutions so accurate and easy to deploy is leveraging the scientists in ODIN Labs who test every major RFID device before it hits the market. ODIN Labs publishes the RFID Benchmark SeriesÃ¢“¢ and RFID Pricing GuideÃ¢“¢, the industry’s most referenced performance and price analyses of RFID equipment. ODIN serves clients from world headquarters in Ashburn, Virginia, and other offices in Boston, MA, Dublin, Ireland and Budapest, Hungary with full-time staff in Toulouse, France.
