Dulles Firm Snags Airbus Work

ODIN Technologies has inked a five-year deal to help European aircraft maker Airbus deploy radio frequency identification equipment to track spare parts across its supply chain. ODIN does not manufacture RFID readers or tags but provides testing, design, installation, software and consulting services for such systems. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Chief executive Patrick J. Sweeney II says lots of people have heard about Wal Mart and other retailers making use of RFID to track inventory but the Airbus deal shows how interest is growing among other lines of business.

"It reflects a maturation of our industry," Sweeney said in an interview.
