Savi Sensors

Savi sensors are built to drive effective and accurate real-time tracking of assets and shipments throughout the global supply chain. Our sensors enable organizations to access real-time information on the location, condition and security status of assets and shipments. Savi sensors have been battle-tested for two decades — organizations around the world rely on our sensors to ensure mission-critical supplies reach their destination. Today, Savi sensors track hundreds of thousands of shipments per year in more than 50 countries across the global supply chain. Our sensors support active RFID, mobile and satellite communications.

The Savi Locate Sensor is a low-cost, high-performance tracking device designed to monitor worldwide intermodal shipments. The low cost of the sensor allows it to be economically feasible as a single use device when return logistics are not an option. The ruggedness of the sensor allows it to be reused many times over if desired. Savi Secure sensors continuously monitor the shipment environment and instantaneously send alerts to Savi Visibility when exceptions to pre-defined threshold conditions occur—whether location, time, geozone, shock, vibration, motion, stoppage or any other event combinations. All Savi Secure Parent Long Life sensors have a battery life of up to 60 days at two-hour reporting intervals. Parent sensors may be used alone for anti-tampering or security purposes or used in conjunction with up to twenty-four Savi Secure Child sensors.

Savi Readers

Wide Range of Fixed and Mobile Readers · Savi Provides a wide range of fixed Active RFID readers and hybrid mobile devices that are backward compatible with Active RFID sensors. Savi Fixed Readers track items moving through gates and chokepoints or monitor assets within warehouses and yards. The fixed readers then forward this data to Savi SmartChain or other applications using the SmartChain Developer’s Platform. The Savi Mobile Reader (SMR) performs similar functions as the Savi Fixed Readers, except that the SMR is designed to connect directly with mobile devices and workstations. SMRs are portable devices that on-the-ground personnel use to interact with assets and shipments. SmartChain Edge applications and devices capture operational field events, such as attaching a tag to an asset, shipping an asset or consolidating a shipment

savi military portable deployment kit (pdk)

Portable Deployment Kits

Fast and Flexible Implementation · For fast implementation or expansion of tracking areas, as is the case with military deployments, Savi has developed the Savi Portable Deployment Kit (PDK) and a lighter version, the PDK II. The hardened transit case protects equipment from water (rain, seawater, fog, etc.) and from damage if the case is dropped during loading and unloading or exposed to harsh vibration while being transported over unpaved roads. The PDKs are operational out of the box, with a laptop, mobile device, mobile readers, printer, software and communications equipment included.

For more than 25 years, the US DoD has used active RFID to track mission critical shipments through the world’s largest supply chain. Today, the need for a minimal logistical footprint coupled with maximum mobility is driving us to use infrastructure-less mobile sensors. Savi’s cellular, satellite, and hybrid active RFID sensors give us backward compatibility with active RFID and the capability to track shipments as they transit from land to air, sea, or rail to truck. Our logisticians gain visibility to make timely, actionable decisions to ensure the right parts, get to the right place, at the right time
