A2B Tracking Solutions wins Marine Corps contract

June 3, 2009
Under the contract A2B is to provide the US Marine Corps with IUID integrated marking carts (including laser markers) to meet DoD requirements

A2B Tracking Solutions has been awarded a one-year contract for up to $2.5 million from the Marine Corps System Command Operational Forces Systems. Under the contract A2B is to provide the US Marine Corps (USMC) with IUID integrated marking carts in order to meet the Departmenet of Defense (DoD) IUID requirement to mark all legacy equipment by December 31, 2010.

The transportable marking carts, which will be deployed to USMC installations worldwide will include A2B's UID Comply! data management software along with laser marking devices, thermal transfer printers, laptop computers, scanners, and barcode verifiers. A2B will also provide installation, training, and on-going support.

With the IUID initiative, DoD intends that all its assets will become visible through a central IUID registry. This visibility will enable important cost containment measures with regard to DoD assets, including elimination of redundancy, quick access to field location, and the pinpointing of malfunctioning parts for predictive maintenance and informed procurement.

Late last year A2B won a $70 million US Air Force contract to supply IUID labels and plates to installations around the world. The company has expanded its headquarters and is gearing up to fulfill that five-year commitment.
