Airbus selects CSC as Prime contractor for further development and support of Airbus' award-winning Value Chain Visibility and Auto-ID program

CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced that the company has been selected by Airbus as the Prime contractor for further development and support of Airbus' award-winning Value Chain Visibility (VCV) and Auto-ID program. In this role, CSC will be responsible for coordinating the implementation of all Auto-ID and RFID projects and will work with all previously selected Airbus Auto-ID suppliers (for hardware integration, software and software development), to ensure overall delivery of the Airbus VCV & Auto-ID projects. The Prime activities include overall project management, business analysis and change management, architecture, operation, monitoring and support.

"We are delighted to have been selected by Airbus as the Prime contractor for this important project," said Eileen Sweeney, president of CSC's Manufacturing Group. "This program will allow us to combine CSC's deep industry expertise with our recognized systems integration, technical and operational capability to help Airbus recognize the full value of their RFID program."

The announcement signals to the Aerospace & Defense industry, as well as to those organizations which have followed the development of Auto-ID and RFID technology, an important inflection point in the RFID adoption curve. For many years, Airbus, winner of the 2008 RFID Journal Award for Best Implementation, has refined the business case for RFID adoption through a growing number of industrial deployments across the company. Today's announcement clearly demonstrates the real business value Airbus has uncovered in that technology and the company's commitment to the pervasive use of RFID in support of Airbus' mission to provide the aircraft best suited to the market's needs, to build the aircraft with the most efficient and effective processes, and to support these aircraft with the highest quality of service.
