- The Ongoing War Against Inefficiencies
The U.S. Department of Defense is refining its RFID strategy to optimize the world's most complex supply chain.
- RFID Controls Cargo Traffic at Hong Kong International Airport
Asia Airfreight Terminal deployed an RFID-based truck control system to monitor and manage traffic flow at two air-cargo terminals.
- An RFID Roadmap for Small and Midsize Contract Manufacturers
Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing, which makes aerospace components, deployed a work-in-process application to track orders for Boeing.
- Co-Located Event: RFID in Aerospace Workshop
The RFID in Aerospace Workshop provided a unique opportunity to understand the fundamentals of RFID technology in relation to the aerospace sector. Participants took away key learnings in the following subject areas: technology basics (including overviews of physics, hardware and software), business and use cases of RFID for aerospace and defense, and important standards and regulations that are key to effective deployments.
- 10 Presentations From RFID Journal LIVE! 2009
Speakers at the conference offered numerous case studies on monitoring assets, inventories, items, temperatures and more.
- Aerospace/Defense Track
The U.S. Department of Defense, as well as airplane manufacturers Boeing and Airbus, have deployed RFID systems to improve their supply chains and operations. This track focused on the benefits all three are achieving, and how their suppliers are meeting tagging mandates and achieving benefits, both internally and across their supply chains.
- RFID Takes Hold in the U.S. Air Force
Robins Air Force Base, in Georgia, developed an RFID system to track critical aircraft components and tools, thus saving money and improving safety. The asset-tracking system has been deployed at five other bases and could become part of a standard solution in the Air Force.
- Nordam Casts a New Mold With RFID
The aircraft parts manufacturer uses RFID to track and monitor its precision molds.
- Navy Tracks Broken Parts From Iraq
The U.S. Navy completed a six-month field trial involving the tagging of more than 12,000 airplane parts and containers. Learn how much the project cost, the challenges that were overcome, the results and why the Navy wants to expand the project.
- NASA Creates Thinking RF Sensors
Low-cost wireless sensor networks developed by NASA can detect environmental changes and take action in response to what they detect. Now RFID is set to make them even more effective.
