Tracking munitions is a costly and time-consuming process for military units. They can’t afford to waste cartridges, missiles or grenades. Lockheed Martin has developed a new system that works around many of the challenges of tracking RFID tags remotely. It’s called the Rubee Weapon Shot Counter, and it could potentially save the Defense Department millions. Dr. Rob Smith, the vice president of C4ISR Systems for Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems and Global Solutions, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to dive deeper into the Rubee’s uses.
