Which Companies Supply RFID Tags to Boeing?
Can you please shed some light on this?
In late 2010, Boeing announced a partnership with Fujitsu to develop a full turnkey RFID solution known as the Automated Identification Technology (AIT) Retrofit Package, designed for managing aircraft parts through repair, maintenance and inspection processes (see Boeing, Fujitsu to Offer Airlines a Holistic RFID Solution). The system, which Boeing sells to its new and existing customers, such as airline companies, was taken live in 2012. Boeing is also using the Fujitsu transponders on all new 737, 777 and 787 commercial passenger aircraft that it builds, as well as on all P-8, C-17 and KC-46 military planes (see Boeing to Launch RFID Program for Airlines in February).
