Russian Cadets to Test Military Uniform Identification System
The cadets from the Ussuriysk Suvorov Military School will test a new military uniform identification system using electronic labels. This came in a statement by Colonel Alexander Gordeev, a spokesman for the Eastern Military District.
“We have developed a fundamentally new approach to the military uniform identification. Each article of uniform and soldier equipment is fitted with an elastic label containing a microchip,” Mr. Gordeev stated, explaining that these items will be read by a scanner and presented in an electronic format.
The scanner is also used to determine the number and variety of clothes, accessories and frequency of laundering.
“This method eliminates any errors, substitutions or shortages. Therefore, everyone will get his clothes after laundering,” Mr. Gordeev stated.
