NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., is using RFID tags and readers to detect and relay real-time information on the usage, shipment, tracking and storage of chemicals at the base to Dryden’s existing Web-based hazardous materials management system (HMMS). The HMMS provides a way to manage data including the inventory, status and location of chemicals and the tracking of hazardous waste. Learn how this system improves tracking over the previous bar code system.
