Savi launches hybrid GlobalTag

Savi Technology has launched an asset and shipment monitoring device that combines a global positioning system, active radio frequency identification and satellite communications. 

Savi’s hybrid ST-694 GlobalTag is designed to provide defence, public sector and commercial customers with continuous monitoring and precise location information of supply chain assets, including areas where there is no terrestrial reader infrastructure.

David Shannon, Savi Technology’s senior vice president of marketing and strategy, said: “This device spans visibility across existing RFID networks and into remote areas where traditional active RFID infrastructure is not practical, such as desert military bases or offshore oil and gas rigs. 

“This will deliver improved, seamless visibility throughout the supply chain regardless of physical location.”
