Below you will find links to the recordings and slides from the Energy/Construction Track sessions held during  RFID Journal Virtually LIVE! 2020.


Thurs., Oct. 1, 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM
Improving Proof of Identity and Competence in the Construction Industry
NOCN Job Cards, part of the NOCN Group, provides proof that an individual has achieved the required training, or theory and practical tests, and competence-based qualifications for the type of work they carry out, primarily in the U.K. construction industry. Each type of card issued represents different levels of testing or training and competence to operate specific equipment. There are numerous different roles in construction and each of these have different requirements to show competency. In this session hear how the firm implemented NFC-enabled cards to improve security by proving identity and competence, as well as reducing printing costs and plastics usage. Key takeaways: Learn how the cards have additional functionality beyond proof of identity and competence. Future uses, including the possibility of delivering training materials, measuring time and attendance and equipment track work logs.
Speaker: Mark Buckton, Executive Director of Job Cards and Services, NOCN Job Cards, NOCN Services

Enhancing Safety, Security and Safeguards of Nuclear and Other Radioactive Materials
In this presentation, the speaker describes the ARG-US (meaning watchful guardian) remote monitoring systems technology developed by Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy Packaging Certification Program, Office of Packaging and Transportation, Office of Environmental Management. Over the past 12 years, Argonne has developed, demonstrated, and deployed two patented technology systems: the smart drum technology and the remote area modular monitoring (RAMM)/TRAVELER, with the goal of enhancing the safety, security, and safeguards (3S) of nuclear and other radioactive materials, including spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste during storage, transportation and disposal. Highlights are provided for selected use cases of ARG-US remote monitoring systems in critical facilities, tracking and monitoring nuclear cargos during vehicle and rail shipments, hands-on exercises in training courses on transport security, and a brief discussion of future directions. Key takeaways: Learn how the use of ARG-US remote monitoring systems technology to enhance safety and security of other risk-significant materials Learn how Argonne National Laboratory and DOE are transferring the technology for commercialization.
Speaker: Yung Liu, Senior Nuclear Engineer and Manager of the Packaging Certification and Life Cycle Management Group, Decision & Infrastructure Sciences Division,  Argonne National Laboratory
