RFID in Aerospace and Defense 2018 Report

View the presentations from RFID Journal's recent conference and exhibition, held in Arlington, Va.
By Rich Handley
Dec 30, 2018

The aerospace and defense sector has been increasingly deploying radio frequency identification technologies. Boeing and Airbus have each begun requiring that RFID tags be applied to some parts, and the goal of the entire industry has been to move toward the use of RFID tags on many different components. This follows the long-standing policy of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to use RFID to track shipments of most of the goods it purchases.

These and other organizations are deploying RFID technologies to improve efficiencies, enhance visibility and achieve other business benefits. This year's RFID in Aerospace and Defense 2018 Report conference and exhibition, held on Dec. 12 in Arlington, Va., focused on helping companies in these sectors implement RFID technology to meet customers' tagging requirements, and to achieve significant benefits internally. Case studies presented by aerospace and defense firms already using RFID were designed to help attendees determine the best technology for their needs, as well as learn best practices from early adopters.

The conference sessions covered a wide variety of applications relevant to the aerospace and defense sectors, including asset tracking, baggage tracking, work-in-process tracking, reducing the incidence of foreign objects left onboard, enhancing worker safety, supply chain management, customer compliance and more. Attendees had the opportunity to meet with RFID technology providers exhibiting at the event. These leading RFID companies offered solutions specifically designed for the aerospace and defense sectors, such as high-memory tags and other tags able to survive in harsh aerospace environments. This year's conference attracted 85 attendees.

The conference featured an advanced, one-day fast-track training course, presented by RFID4U. Using the latest equipment and relevant RFID deployment scenarios, this course provided a solid foundation to help attendees design, install, configure, monitor and troubleshoot an RFID deployment. The training prepared participants to take the RFID Professional Institute's Certified Associate exam onsite at the event.

Links to PDFs of the slides used in the speaker presentations are provided on the following pages. Not all speakers have granted permission to have their slides archived. Please note that due to a glitch onsite at the conference, we were unable to record the sessions for playback.
