The U.S Department of Energy was a Technical Board Advisor of the DASH7 Alliance. The DASH7 Alliance is a consortium of leading industry players, gathered to advance open specifications for industrial IoT (internet of things), smart cities, logistics, and the use of DASH7 wireless data technology by developing extensions to the ISO 18000-7 standard, ensuring interoperability among devices, and educating the market about DASH7 technology. Drs. Yung Y. Liu, ANL/DOE PCP Team Leader, and James M. Shuler (retired), Manager, DOE PCP, were on the original Technical Board of Advisors to the DASH-7 Alliance.

In 2022 Dr. Yung Liu, a nuclear engineer at the DOE Argonne National Laboratory, received the Special Achievement Award from RFID Journal for his work, in partnership with DOE Dr. James Shuler (retired), in developing and deploying the ARG-US Remote Monitoring Systems Technology.
