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.
