Navy taps wireless sensors to track munitions

The Navy will use ultra wideband wireless technology to track munitions, hazardous materials and other highly secure assets in real time.

The service will use technology developed by CACI International Inc. of Arlington, Va., and Time Domain Inc. of Huntsville, Ala., to roll out Geotrack, an ultra wideband asset-monitoring program.

The multimillion-dollar program uses sensor packages on munitions, hazardous materials and items to relay data on each object's location, temperature and status, according to a CACI spokesperson.

The outcome will improve logistics management while updating Navy officials on inventory. The sensors will be able to detect theft, tampering, leakage and degradation, company officials said in a release.
