The FAA requires a physical count of each seat in an aircraft, to verify the existence of required life vests. EAM Worldwide, a manufacturer of aviation life vests and life rafts, is embedding rugged RFID tags in life-vest products, in order to automate compliance, maintenance and inventory-management tasks. The use of RFID-enabled vests and a handheld scanner enables airlines to verify onboard life-vest inventory within seconds, streamlining the compliance audit process, as well as improving audit accuracy. Learn how the data collected onboard can be forwarded to the organization’s inventory-management systems, where such issues as inventory losses and upcoming service requirements can be identified and addressed.
