The term UID represents the item unique identification for applications involving contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense. The Department of Defense (DOD) currently requires all suppliers to comply with the MIL STD 130 specifications for successful contracts. The purpose behind this requirement is to tighten the security and tracking of these items, their distribution, and usage. UID marks also help to better manage the tracking of maintenance to various products and equipment. Ultimately, UID labels help many offices of the U.S. military to maintain an organized database that enables full management of all government assets for the full lifetime of every item.
Today, there are many manufacturers struggling to meet the stringent guidelines for UID labels and compliance. However, this process is quite a bit more complicated than printing a detailed identification mark or tag. Full specifications can be found within the published MIL STD 130 guidelines, however many suppliers prefer to obtain guidance from seasoned integrators. One thing that’s highly recommended for most of these applications is a method to verify that UID labels and direct part markings are compliant and legible.
