I.D. Systems Wins Contract To Deploy Wireless Industrial Vehicle Management System For U.S. Marine Corps

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Oct. 22, 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 been awarded a contract by the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) to deploy I.D. Systems' PowerFleetâ„¢ Wireless Vehicle Management System (VMS) on a fleet of material handling equipment at a U.S. Marine Corps facility in Albany, Georgia. This is the second contract I.D. Systems has executed with NCMS in the past month for a system deployment at a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) facility. The total value of the two contracts is more than $400,000.

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.

"Our mission is to identify and implement best-practice commercial technologies for DoD applications," said Rick Jarman, President and CEO, NCMS. "I.D. Systems' ability to provide flexible technical solutions to meet the needs of different sites has been critical to help us introduce the operational benefits of wireless industrial vehicle management to the DoD."

The PowerFleet system being deployed at the Marine Corps facility is based on cellular communications and remote hosting technology, which enables the Marine Corps to benefit from full system functionality without adding to the site's existing wireless network traffic or requiring ongoing support from the site's information technology resources.

"We are excited about expanding our presence in U.S. Government facilities, particularly within the DoD," said Kenneth Ehrman, president of I.D. Systems. "The Government uses large fleets of material handling equipment and our wireless VMS can provide best-practice tools for managing the safety, maintenance, and productivity of these fleets. We believe this is especially important for the DoD, as it strives to accomplish all of its mission-critical tasks with the same or even fewer resources."
