Fort Hood, the nation’s largest active-duty domestic armed forces facility located in Fort Hood, Texas, has completed the development and installation of an RFID system to track and manage the more than 150,000 medical files of U.S. Army personnel and their family members.

Under the terms of a three-year, $3.76-million contract, with St. Paul, Minn.-based 3M, its Track and Trace Solutions will provide training and maintenance services over the next year.

According to the company, the custom-designed 3M RFID Smart Shelf System is the centerpiece of a pilot program that may be extended to other military installations after a period of evaluation.
