Patrick Burns

President & Chairman – Dash7 Alliance

Speaks at ID WORLD on Wireless Identification

Patrick Burns currently serves as co-founder and President of the DASH7 Alliance and serves as the CEO of Blackbird Technology, a DASH7 startup. Mr. Burns most recently spent over six years running global marketing and licensing activities for Savi Technology, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, where he launched the DASH7 Alliance which today includes more than 60 members across 25 member countries.

Prior to Savi, Mr. Burns was a founding member of SkyTel’s Advanced Applications Group and formed alliances with leading software and e-commerce companies including HP, Sony, Toshiba, and Motorola. He held business development roles at ARDIS, a wireless data joint venture of IBM and Motorola, and, a Symantec-backed e-commerce venture acquired by Quarterdeck. From 1999-2002, he served as co-founder and CEO of Demandline, a B2B marketplace for telecommunications services backed byNew Enterprise Associates.

Prior to being lured outside the D.C. beltway by the call of Silicon Valley, Pat programmed databases for the Office of Management and Budget and the U.S. Treasury Department.


Active RFID technology is dominated by proprietary, non-interoperable technologies and has not delivered on the promises of an otherwise long range, low power wireless alternative to WiFi, Bluetooth, IEEE 802.15.4, or cellular. The emergence of the ISO 18000-7 “DASH7” standard operating at the globally available 433.92 Mhz frequency, combined with the collective effort of more than 60 companies and universities is creating new opportunities for an open source alternative for a wide range of

wireless sensor networking and active RFID applications. This presentation will explore opportunities with DASH7 with an emphasis on case studies across multiple industries, applications, and geographies.
