Mojix, SRA Reach RFID Deal

April 28, 2009

Mojix has announced a partnership with SRA International, which sells technology and consulting for Radio Frequency Identification-enabled products, mainly to government organizations.

Using the capabilities of the Mojix SpaceTime Array Reader system and SRA’s expertise in "enterprise logistics, Auto ID programs and government supply chain optimization," the two companies can develop products "built on the capabilities of the Mojix STAR system to government customers,” says Ramin Sadr, CEO & Founder, Mojix.

“We look forward to applying SRA’s capabilities and deep knowledge of the government supply chain to help clients realize the new value derived from solutions built on the Mojix STAR system,” said SRA Vice President and Director, Logistics, George Batsakis. "Mojix technology establishes new avenues for use cases and applications for passive RFID.”

SRA’s supply chain products are used, for example, in the military's Warfighter through automated asset visibility and management. SRA officials say its products are meant to streamline the deployment process, lower cost and reduce the logistics footprint. As a vendor in Automatic Identification Technology space, SRA uses RFID and Unique Item Identification technologies to manage data across the supply chain network.

The Mojix STAR system is a UHF passive RFID system using digital signal processing and an RFID systems architecture. The ability to read passive RFID tags over long range, determine tag location, and secure and authenticate tag data in one system "changes the economics of RFID," Mojix officials maintain.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Mojix was founded in 2004 by a team of former JPL/NASA scientists and engineers who thought they could apply discoveries in deep space communications to "refine the precision, reach and scope of RFID technology," according to company officials. The firm is privately held with funding from Oak Investment Partners, Red Rock Ventures and InnoCal Venture Capital. For more information, please visit.

Last fall TMC 's Jai C.S. reported Mojix's announcement that its Mojix STAR system achieved certification with IBM’s Ready for IBM WebSphere Premises Server program.
