U.S. Military to Issue RFID Mandate
RFID Journal has learned that the U.S. Department of Defense plans to ask its top 100 suppliers to put RFID tags on pallets, cases and big-ticket items. The military intends to spell out its plans in detail sometime next summer, but it is believed that tagging could begin in 2005.
RFID tags in general are a significant privacy risk, but use for inventory control in the military isn't such a big deal... except in that the military use could inject a huge amount of money and support into the technology.
