RFID Journal announced today that key leaders from the aerospace and aviation sectors will discuss the benefits of radio frequency identification technology at this year's RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition, which will be held on May 3-5, at the Orange County Convention Center, located in Orlando, Fla. The event represents a unique opportunity for parts suppliers, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies, and airlines to learn how RFID is transforming the aviation industry.

Among the sessions to be featured at LIVE! 2016 are the following:

Keynote Address: Delta Improves Maintenance Efficiencies With RFID
Speaker: Rick Lewis, Business Analyst, Aircraft Maintenance, Delta Air Lines

Boeing Uses RFID to Improve Visibility into Production Process
Speaker: Chris Dulaney, Project Manager, Information Technology, St. Louis Data Collection Systems, Boeing

Orbital ATK Uses RFID to Manufacture Composite Aerostructures
Speaker: Jim Morgan, Program Manager, Orbital ATK

U.S. Air Force Improves Aircraft Maintenance With AIT
Speaker: Matthew Joseph, Serco Inc., AIT Program Tech Lead, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, U.S. Air Force

KLM Maintenance Cuts Parts' Packaging Costs With RFID
Speaker: Jos de Kleine, Manager, Logistic Development, KLM Engineering and Maintenance

In addition, Brian Verna, an aerospace engineer at the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), will provide an update on his agency's policies toward the use of passive and active RFID on airplanes. And Carlo Nizam, Airbus' head of digitalization, will participate on a panel highlighting the RFID Journal Awards' 10-year history.

"We are excited to have some great new case studies in the aerospace and aviation sectors," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "With industry moving toward the use of RFID for part tracking and maintenance improvement, now is the time for parts suppliers, MRO companies and airlines to come and learn about the benefits of RFID."

This year's event will feature four industry tracks covering aerospace and defense, retail and apparel, health care and pharmaceuticals, and manufacturing. Other tracks will cover the use of RFID for supply chain and logistics operations, and for payments and authentication, as well as the technology and infrastructure needed for RFID data collection, and innovative uses of RFID.

LIVE! 2016 will also feature seven in-depth preconference seminars and workshops, four post-conference seminars, fast-track training provided by RFID4U, RFID Professional Institute certification, and three co-located events (IEEE RFID 2016, the Internet of Things Conference and the Last Mile Consortia Forum). In addition, the event will offer exhibits and demonstrations conducted by the industry's leading technology firms.
