Communication with an active RFID

If I were to use a device like the one displayed here:

http://gaorfid.com/product/tag-transponder-active-vibration-sensor-2-45-ghz-rfid/

What would I need for a Window program to be able to poll the device and receive information from it? I assume a transmitter and a receiver would be needed.

Could you give me an example of the correct hardware?

Thanks

Your RFID uses 2.45GHz and is active type, meaning has a battery inside and sends feedback response with the energy from that battery. Usally is has a sleep stage with low energy consumption, but awake enough to listen the possible requests from readers or movements/vibration to record these events., then it wakes up and uses full power for short periods of time, the goes back to sleep mode.
You need  only an active RFID reader 2.45GHz as additional hardware to read your Tag/Transponder:

The software that you need is next one:

You have 4 options. All 4 will work, So it can be only reader or can be reader/receiver. It depends for what you will use the tags, the application.
I expect the USB one to the cheapest.
The reader/receiver gives you more options and I would take that one.
What I like is that you can set(change the range to discover/interrogate the tags.
I would go with http://gaorfid.com/product/reader-receiver-gain-adjustable-active-wifi-2-45ghz-rfid/ because has WiFi connection top connect to the host/PC.
