  • Choosing the Optimum Architecture for UWB RTLS
    Published June 2013
    Real-time locating systems (RTLS) operating in the ultra-wideband domain are becoming more common in many applications, ranging from automated student attendance verification to tool tracking for major aircraft manufacturers. UWB offers many attributes enabling it to provide new capabilities not possible with traditional RTLS technology. Zebra Technologies explains how the choice of UWB RTLS architecture can impact a user's ability to achieve a solid return on investment. (6 pages)
  • Improving Aircraft Maintenance Management Using RFID
    Published May 2013
    Airlines have been late adopters of advanced inventory-management systems, particularly involving AIDC technologies, since aircraft maintenance management is highly industry-specific, considerably regulated and subject to many complexities not present in other industries. With the recent emergence of the U.S Federal Aviation Administration's regulatory airworthiness criteria for flyable RFID, and the recently agreed-upon interoperability data standards, there is now an opportunity for airlines to achieve short- and long-term wins. This essay, from Laminar Aerospace's Marco Andreacchio, outlines how RFID could support a paperless supply chain strategy, and details many key tangible and nontangible benefits for airlines.
