The US Army has selected North American firm Lowry Computer Products to provide US Government agencies, including the army, with automatic identification technology (AIT) to streamline defence and logistic supply chain automation efforts.

The US Army’s Information Technology , E-commerce , and Commercial Contracting Center has awarded the contract with a potential value in excess of $400m to Lowry and other companies.

Lowry will collaborate with partners such as Motorola, Zebra Technologies , Caci and many others to provide end-users with best equipment to help them with their AIT needs.
