Automate your data capture with DoD-96 and MIL-STD-129 compliant RFID enabled shipping labels. DoD-96 is a requirement implemented in 2006 by the department of defense. It requires that shipments of specific items to certain locations must have a passive RFID label or tag attached to them. MIL-STD-129 is a standard that covers what information is required on labels for shipping and storage.

These labels meet both standards, and are easily identified by the cage code and serial number. An included buddy label detaches from liner and allows you to keep a separate set of records. Custom printing and encoding is available.

Tested Polarization:

Tag performance was experimentally mesaured in an anechoic chamber with a known set of experimental variables. The antenna used for measurements was linearly polzarized and of monostatic configuration. The direction of tested polarization is as follows.
