Press Release Summary: The US Army's Product Manager Joint-Automatic Identification
Technology (PM J-AIT) Office for total AIT and RFID solutions awards passive RFID
contract valued at over $75.5 million to ODIN technologies.

Press Release Body: Ft. Belvoir, VA, Dulles, VA, October 6, 2008 - The US Army's
Product Manager Joint-Automatic Identification Technology (PM J-AIT) Office for
total AIT and RFID solutions today selected ODIN technologies as a prime contractor
for its Passive Radio Frequency Identification (pRFID) contract. ODIN technologies,
the global leader in complete RFID solutions, software and services along with its
partners SRA, Unisys, KTS Solutions, Intermec, Zebra, Sirit, OAT Systems and IBM
will offer complete solutions to the joint services through this $75.5 million
indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract.

"During this past year we've seen a dramatic shift in pRFID solutions; standards
have stabilized and technology has greatly improved leading to surging adoption.
This is yet another positive development in the improving state of the RFID
industry," commented Patrick J. Sweeney II of ODIN technologies. "The Department of
Defense is setting their sights on nothing short of the most efficient supply chain
in support of the warfighter, and ODIN is proud and honored to be selected as a
prime contractor on this mission. The new pRFID contract from PM J-AIT provides
acquisition support and technical expertise for Joint Services, Federal agencies,
NATO, and multi-national forces on a vehicle that makes procurement easy. It's
one-stop-shopping for passive RFID."

The pRFID contract greatly streamlines the purchase of passive RFID solutions needed
by the Government since ODIN technologies and its partner contractors bring turn-key
pRFID solutions to address any and all requirement of the DoD. All of the hardware,
software, and services that make up solutions can be purchased today through this
contract. PM J-AIT evaluated and analyzed all of the various vendors before choosing
the ODIN team, so that end-users can quickly and easily call on the provider to
stand-up a solution. There is early interest in using this IDIQ to build upon the
extensive infrastructure ODIN technologies installed for the Defense Logistics
Agency (DLA) at all of the Defense Distribution Centers (DDC) across the United
States as well as to support specific projects in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and
Air Force.
