Singapore Civil Defence Force Orders Passive RFID Equipment Tracking Solution

Hitachi recently announced the order of a Passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Equipment Tracking Solution from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). This is the first RFID technology order made by the SCDF to use to support its current defence technologies. The RFID solution will be used to track equipment such as fire extinguishers and portable pumps. SCDF has three main operational appliances that will be using the RFID tags. The appliances are its Pump Ladder (PL), Light Fire Attack Vehicle (LFAV) and the Ambulance. The solution will be enacted for all 16 fire stations across the island.
Hitachi Asia Ltd. has been in close discussion with the Singapore government but this is the first contract that it has signed with a government agency of Singapore. It is considered a big leap towards success for Hitachi. This contract was signed after Hitachi established a partnership with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) through a Memorandum of Intent signed in January of 2010. It has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Economic Development Board (EDB) in May 2010 to work together for any urban related projects in Singapore.
