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

Wed., Sept. 30, 2:30 PM – 3:00 PM
BAE Systems Improves Manufacturing and Inventory Capability with RFID
BAE Systems, an international defense, aerospace and security company, has deployed three RFID-enabled projects in its Electronic Warfare Integrated Manufacturing Center (EW-IMC): automated point-of-use (POU) material inventory replenishment, automated asset and tool tracking, and automated work-in-process (WIP) tracking. The projects increased production capacity and capability in its supply chain and its factories, thereby ensuring the success of current and future production programs for its customers. Learn how the firm improved the utilization of existing capacity across its sites, boosting manufacturing capability and product flow, while creating a process to accelerate production transitions. In addition, hear how the use of RFID technology may be expanded to other factories and sites in the future. BAE Systems is the 2019 winner of the RFID Journal Award for Best Manufacturing Implementation.
Speakers: Deirdre Schmidt,  Operations Excellence Leader, BAE Systems
Peter Wright, Project Engineering Manager, BAE Systems

IT Asset Management: Increasing Efficiency with AIT and ITAM
AIT (Automatic Identification Technology) is a more secure and efficient way of tracking, monitoring and managing information technology (IT) hardware and software assets throughout their entire life cycle, across the enterprise. Key takeaways: Learn how the use of the technology can ultimately increase cybersecurity resilience by enhancing the visibility of assets. Hear how the identification of vulnerable assets enables faster response to security alerts, revealing which applications are actually being used, and reduces help desk response times.
Speaker: Thu Dahl, Contractor, National Geospatial Agency

NOAA Uses RFID to Track Fish at High Speed in Washington Dam
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)has launched a passive low-frequency (LF) RFID tracking system at the Lower Granite Dam’s Ogee spillway. The system captures the unique identity of thousands of salmon and steelhead at a distance of 1 meter or more underwater as the fish pass by at approximately 47 miles per hour on their way to the Pacific Ocean’s Columbia Basin.The RFID antenna array that captures that data is permanently built into Spillway 1 at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)’s Lower Granite Dam. Key takeaways: Hear why the resulting data from the system will help researchers understand the number of salmon surviving to spawn, as well as when problems in the fish’s life cycle might occur. Learn how the installation of an RFID-based detection system might be used in the future at additional locations.
Speaker: Gabriel Brooks, Electronic Technician, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
