- 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.
