Defense Logistics Agency Selects I.D. Systems To Manage Industrial Vehicles With Secure Wi-Fi Technology

Stocks in this article: IDSY

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Sept. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- I.D. Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDSY), a leading provider of wireless solutions for securing, tracking and managing high-value enterprise assets, has received a contract from the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) to deploy I.D. Systems' PowerFleetâ„¢ Vehicle Management System (VMS) on a fleet of material handling equipment at the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) facility at Robins Air Force Base (AFB), Georgia. The system is being deployed for an initial pilot phase, with the potential to expand more broadly across the DLA and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

NCMS is a non-profit organization, funded in part by the DoD, that forms partnerships between the DoD and private industry under the Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) program. NCMS facilitates development, deployment and validation of innovative commercial technologies that provide operational benefits and cost savings for DoD maintenance activities.

Robins AFB is the home of Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, the 78th Air Base Wing, and more than 60 other units that make up a vital part of the Air Force warfighting team. It is the largest industrial complex in Georgia, employing a workforce of over 25,000 civilians, contractors and military members.

The PowerFleet system being deployed at Robins AFB will incorporate a "FIPS 140-2" compliant Wi-Fi transceiver, designed to enable industrial vehicles to communicate data securely, with military-approved encryption, through the DLA's existing wireless network. This secure wireless communication capability is essential for many vehicle management applications throughout the DoD.

"We are proud to continue our strong tradition of identifying and helping implement best-practice commercial technologies for DoD applications," said Tony Haynes, Acting CTMA Director. "We look forward to seeing the proven commercial capabilities of the PowerFleet system translate into operational benefits for DoD maintenance activities."

"Maintenance is a vital component of mission readiness and therefore a major strategic focus for the DoD," said Greg Kilchenstein of the Office of the Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics. "The DoD expends a significant percentage of the national defense budget on maintenance operations, so we are excited to introduce the DLA to I.D. Systems' wireless industrial vehicle management technology, which has proven its value in the commercial sector by reducing maintenance and other costs in material handling operations, improved workplace safety, and increased supply chain productivity."
