Using extensive experience and proven methodologies, Camcode offers high-level UID policy development and guidance. Our goal is to support you through every step of the UID policy development process to ensure your program flows from top to bottom and across all divisions and branches. We take into account your organization’s unique rules surrounding physical marking and data requirements.
Our services begin with a thorough consultation at your facility. We work with you to understand your goals for UID adoption. Camcode then assists with implementation strategies and project planning to ensure successful execution of your UID program.
Engineering and Marking Specifications
Camcode also performs on-site surveys of each item to be marked, its application surface, the anticipated operating conditions, and available marking area. We then provide you with a UID marking specification for each item to be marked. This assures items are marked properly and consistently across the NATO Stock Number (NSN). Our marking specifications also serve as a blueprint for the UID label production and installation.
The objective of the data reconciliation process is to provide you with an efficient and accurate solution to capture and verify serial numbers from your asset inventory. We help you make sense of your legacy asset data. We’ll even assist you with matching your data to inventory items.
UII Data Management
Camcode’s data management systems monitor serial numbers, part numbers and CAGE codes from project to project, providing accurate marks and UID labels for every item. This includes validation that your UID labels do not contain duplicate Unique Item Identifiers (UIIs) and that the labels comply with military standards such as MIL-STD 130 and STANAG 2290.
UID Label Installation
Camcode has installed UID labels and marks on hundreds of thousands of assets, from dismounted close combat and communication assets for the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence, to shipboard equipment for the U.S. Navy and optics equipment for the U.S. Army. Through an exclusive system and proven processes, our installation teams can locate and mark thousands of assets on-site at military bases or defense contractor locations.
Our installation process begins with kitted UID labels, which are catalogued by asset type and installation location. The installation team can quickly and accurately locate the proper item and correct mark for efficient installation. Each label is scanned and validated during this process, and the Unique Item Identifier (UII) data is then transmitted to a UID specialist for item registration.
With experience and knowledge of registration requirements and data management best practices, Camcode has registered thousands of assets over hundreds of projects into the DoD IUID registry. Using the most advanced software tools in the industry, we'll register both your legacy and "children" IUIDs quickly, easily and efficiently. Our years of expertise in IUID labeling ensure that your registration will also be error-free. You'll get a complete IUID registration report by email confirming your items have been properly registered. For new and "parent" data items, we will help you format your data into an XML file so you can upload it to the Wide Area Work Flow (WAWF).
Camcode also offers thorough reports on your overall UID project, complete with project statistics. Upon completion, the reports examine the marking effort at specific marking locations and note any issues that may have occurred. This close cooperation gives you excellent visibility of your legacy data, and provides detailed work instructions on common errors and data best practices.
We can also help you with your UID label needs. From durable Metalphoto anodized aluminum UID labels and Foil UID labels to CARC paint UID labels and SandShield protective covers, Camcode is your one source for all your UID, Mil-Std-130 and asset traceability solutions.
