The US Army has selected enterprise infrastructure solutions provider GTSI as one of five companies to provide automatic identification technology (AIT) products, services and solutions.

Under the $418.52m contract the five firms, including GTSI, will provide mobile and handheld computing devices connected to wireless networks and enterprise applications to capture and process data from barcodes, item unique identification (IUID) and radio frequency identification (RFID) tags.

The companies will also provide technical engineering services, including requirements analysis, systems engineering and integration, application development, implementation, training and lifecycle support services under an Army Programme Executive Office enterprise information systems programme.

GTSI chief executive officer Jim Leto said that the company looks forward to working with the army and other departments to help them build sophisticated asset management and supply chain solutions to meet their critical mission needs.

“By automating or applying technology applications to what was previously a purely manual task, customers will have real-time visibility of assets throughout their work centres and storage areas,” Leto said.

The AIT is aimed at providing a common, integrated solution for logistics tracking, locating, and monitoring of assets and processes as well as reducing administrative and logistics costs in a wide variety of applications.
