RFID Solutions & Applications
RFID for Aerospace and Defense
Various RFID initiatives are being driven to meet the need for automation of material pedigrees in order to solve problems such as counterfeiting. There is a need for technical support for compliance with the US Department of Defense (DoD) Mandate and the commercial impacts of the BoeingAirbus Initiative. By using RFID there is added visibility to the supply chain and production line, reduced risks in employee health and safety and verification of plant maintenance.
Some RFID industry standardization is taking place so that supply chain issues can be managed. The RFID standards that the DoD has helped to evolve are 433 Mhz Active RFID for freight containers and EPCGlobal UHF for case and pallet level tagging. GAO RFID Asset Tracking has a complete lineup of both technologies with the granularity required to satisfy different applications and environments.
