The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is employing RFID to capture data regarding vibration, as well as gauge acoustic emissions, during rocket launches at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Hear how NASA uses the data to gain a greater understanding of the sound waves emitted from launches, and to better predict any potential damage that the waves might cause to equipment and structures within the area. Learn how NASA is using the technology on the International Space Station (ISS), and how a similar system can help companies reduce defects.
