(OTCBB: IFXY), a global provider of unified Smart Grid-related products and services for the Energy and Utility industries, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of controlling interest in Lockwood Technology Corporation, a leading RFID software and hardware solutions provider, from Daedalus Capital, LLC.

The Lockwood technical team has a 16 year track record of developing and implementing comprehensive asset tracking, asset management and security solutions for public and private organizations. Lockwood has deployed solutions for a variety of government agencies including the US Department for Homeland Security, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the US Army and the US House of Representatives.

"We are pleased to welcome the Lockwood team to Infrax. We have been extremely impressed by the robustness of their platform and are looking forward to adding RFID technology and Asset Management to Infrax's Secure Intelligent Energy Platform.

Aiello, CEO of Infrax. "Our goal is to expand the reach of Lockwood Technology into the energy sector, while introducing Infrax Network's product offering into Lockwood's customer base of public safety, government and defense clients."

According to IDTechEX, the Global market for RFID technology in 2010 was $5.63 billion, up from $5.03 billion in 2009. This includes tags, readers and software, services for RFID cards, labels, fobs and all other form factors. ABI Research has forecasted that the overall market will pass the $6 Billion mark in 2011.

The primary drivers for growth will be "modernizing" applications including asset management, cargo tracking and security, corporate employee identification I.D. cards, networks and facility access control, transport passes, as well as supply chain management. Future applications of Lockwood's technologies may include near field communication (NFC) RFID stickers, banking, Electronic money and Mobile commerce.
