RFID & Barcode Solutions for U.S. Government


From conducting daily operations to assuring homeland security to managing emergency response, the mission of government depends on constant, reliable, and secure access to critical data.

Since 1974 we’ve maintained a variety of government contracts, such as pRFID, AIT IV, DLA and GSA, making Lowry the premier automatic identification technology (AIT) supplier to the United States Government.

Lowry’s government solutions integrate barcode and RFID technologies, relational database software, and professional services into cost-effective solutions that securely connect people, assets, and data to give government agencies the necessary information and visibility to make better decisions, deliver higher quality services, and fulfill their missions.

We provide RFID-based government solutions, IT asset tracking, and barcode data collection solutions.


Applying our full portfolio of best-in-class RFID products, Lowry designs, integrates, and delivers RFID systems and government solutions that help increase asset visibility and utilization, improve employee productivity and efficiency, and reduce the cost of doing business.


Government runs on data. This means government agencies today have more IT assets than ever to manage, maintain, and track. As the number of deployed IT assets increase, so does the difficulty of keeping track of them.

Lowry Asset Control System (ACS) provides government agencies with outstanding IT asset tracking capabilities. Combining barcode and RFID technology with flexible relational database software, ACS tracks the location of IT assets anywhere in the world—reducing auditing time and increasing accuracy.

Real-time IT asset tracking assures that they have not been lost or stolen. Stationary readers in sensitive facilities can send alerts or sound alarms if assets are improperly removed from locations.

For greater ease and accuracy in IT asset tracking, Lowry has developed its own RFID tag ideally suited to tricky spaces such as on rack-mounted equipment.


Lowry Software and Partners’ stationary and handheld readers, scanners, and computers work together to provide government agencies with barcode, RFID, wireless, and mobile data collection solutions at the forefront of technology.

Lowry Solutions provide accurate and secure real-time data collection to track fixed or mobile assets, reduce loss or theft, monitor and control facility access, document inspections, authenticate products and materials, and verify a chain of custody. Electronic capture reduces time-consuming and error prone paper and manual processes, providing accurate and up-to-date information for more timely and effective decision making.

GHS Compliance Is Now Mandatory

But don’t worry, Lowry Solutions makes it fast and easy.

If you’re a chemical manufacturer, importer, distributor, or employer using chemicals in the workplace, complying with GHS label requirements is non-negotiable. Lowry Solutions is the one-stop resource for complete, custom label solutions designed to help you meet GHS label requirements.

GHS, short for Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, is a global chemical classification and labeling system developed by the United Nations to provide an international communication standard for chemical labeling based on signal words, pictograms, and hazard and precautionary statements printed on resilient labels to inform workers and avoid dangerous situations.

For chemicals shipped overseas, an additional standard — BS 5609 — is applied to ensure that the combination of label and printed ink can withstand exposure to water.

In partnership with ITW Thermal Films — which manufactures, converts, and distributes PrintheadSaver® thermal transfer ribbons for barcoding and labeling applications to customers around the world — Lowry’s team of labeling compliance experts can help you choose the precise solution for your needs:

  • The best BS 5609-tested and -certified label and ribbon combination
  • The most suitable label printer technology and software

WHAT IS BS 5609?

BS 5609 is the British Standard for labels and printed inks used on chemical containers shipped by sea. As part of GHS compliance, both the label and the ink together must meet this requirement for use in marine applications.

Several label and ink combinations have been certified by accredited testing labs to determine which combinations are durable enough to resist maritime exposure.
