Why We’re The Best

Patuxent offers more permanent and durable label solutions for UID applications than any one. Our UID label materials are the most widely specified in the defense industry, and are continually trusted to provide permanent and durable unique identification that lasts a lifetime.

We offer high-level UID policy development and guidance. Our goal is to support you through every step of the UID policy development process to ensure your program flows from top to bottom and across all divisions and branches.

Since the infancy for the UID mandate, Patuxent UID has assisted small defense contractors, large defense contractors, and military bases in marking, validating, verifying and registering inventory.

What Requires an UID?

All items for which the Government’s unit acquisition cost is $5,000 or more.

Items for which the Government’s unit acquisition cost is less than $5,000, when identified by the requiring activity as DoD serially managed, mission essential or controlled inventory..

When the Government’s unit acquisition cost is less than $5,000 and the requiring activity determines that permanent identification is required.

Regardless of value, (a) any DoD serially managed subassembly, component, or part embedded within an item and, (b) the parent item that contains the embedded subassembly, component or part.
