A2B Tracking presented the 2013 Association for Identification and Mobility Automatic Identification Technology Award to U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse in Portsmouth Friday.
The AIM Automatic Identification Technology Award recognizes an individual, committee, group or organization from the government sector that has championed the successful use of Automated Identification Technology (AIT) in government.
AIT is essentially barcode technology. One type of barcode technology, Item Unique Identification (IUID), is used on critical military assets so that they can be identified and tracked. It allows the Department of Defense to account for every item in its inventory, in production or in use in the field.
