RFID in Aerospace Workshop

The RFID in Aerospace Workshop will provide a unique opportunity to understand the fundamentals of RFID technology in relation to the aerospace sector. Participants will take away key learnings in the following subject areas: technology basics (including overviews of physics, hardware and software), business and use cases of RFID for aerospace and defense, and important standards and regulations that are key to effective deployments.

Additionally, participants will learn about aviation-specific applications of RFID and successful in-service evaluations that have been conducted. The workshop will conclude with an understanding of the recently published FAA Advisory Circular, and the AS5678 performance testing standard. This workshop will be taught by industry-recognized technical subject-matter experts. No prerequisites or prior experience are necessary in order to attend.

Agenda:
• Overview of Aerospace Industry Environment
• The Value of RFID to the Aerospace Industry
• Intro to Standards and Interoperability
• Business and Use Cases of RFID
• RFID Operational Uses
• Applicable Standards Organizations
• Progress on Commercialization of RFID for Aerospace and Defense
• Future RFID Outlook
• Overview of Technical Testing Requirements
• Walk-through of Each Test in AS5678
• Question-and-Answer Session

RFID Basics
New to RFID? Here's your opportunity to gain a basic introduction to the fundamentals of RFID. The differences between the various classes of tags will be explained, including active and passive systems. The need for additional IT systems to build upon RFID in real-world applications will be highlighted. The session also includes a very brief overview of the EPCglobal Network, the future of ISO standards, ETSI reader regulations and the latest standardization efforts worldwide. Finally, the relationship between different standards in the area of RFID and EPC, including the latest EPC generation 2 standard, will be presented.

Speaker:
Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor, RFID Journal

Move to RFID in Aerospace Breakout Room

11:30 am

Introductions and Context
This session will provide an introduction to the speakers and their organizations, as well as the relevance of each to RFID in the aerospace sector.

Speaker:
Jim DelRossi, Founder and CTO, ADR Advisors, Inc.

11:40 am

Current State: RFID in Aerospace
It has been several years since Boeing and Airbus announced plans to work together to create standards for using RFID in the aerospace sector. In this session, the speaker will review the progress hat has been made, where the technology is currently being utilized, and how it is delivering benefits to companies throughout the value chain.

Speakers:
Kenneth Porad, Associate Technical Fellow and Program Manager, Boeing
Daryl Remily, Technical Principal, Boeing

11:50 am

The Value of RFID to the Aerospace Industry
What do aerospace companies need in an RFID tag? This session will examine memory requirements—96-bit to 64 kilobytes—as well as which types of packaging the tags must have, the standards that should be adhered to and the need for interoperability. The speaker will also discuss why the industry needs UHF tags, and the challenges of geographic mobility.

Speaker:
Susan Jordan, Technology Integration Manager, Engineering Operations and Technology, Boeing

12:25 pm

Applicable Standards Organizations
This session will provide an overview of three major standards organizations working toward standards for the aerospace industry: the Air Transport Association, the Society of Automotive Engineers and EPCglobal. What is the role each plays, and how will these standards affect adoption of RFID in the aerospace sector?

Speaker:
Daryl Remily, Technical Principal, Boeing

12:45 pm

Business and Use Cases for RFID
What is the real value of using RFID in the aerospace sector? And what are the major applications in commercial aviation? This session will define business and use cases for the technology in a variety of applications that have shown real benefits for the industry.

Speaker:
Jim DelRossi, Founder and CTO, ADR Advisors, Inc.

1:00 pm

Lunch

1:45 pm

Navigating an RFID Implementation Project
A recent aviation-related project will be explored, in order to provide useful information regarding pitfalls to avoid, lessons learned and tips for a successful implementation. The presenter will describe a systematic method for effectively managing an RFID project, including the establishment of a business and use case. Also considered will be the physics, business processes and importance of coordinating hardware, software and individuals.

Speakers:
Jim DelRossi, Founder and CTO, ADR Advisors, Inc.
Susan Jordan, Technology Integration Manager, Engineering Operations and Technology, Boeing

2:25 pm

Test Lab Overview
AS5678 is a requirements specification created by SAE International for the production and testing of passive RFID tags for the aerospace industry. This specification is also related to the Air Transportation Association's SPEC2000 specification. This session will provide an overview of AS5678 testing requirements, with particular emphasis on general and AS5678 testing.

Speaker:
Andy Brown, RFID Operations Coordinator, Sun Microsystems

2:40 pm

AS5678 Testing Walkthrough
AS5678 applications are dependant on the usage of tags and tagged parts. This session will illustrate how to determine AS5678 testing needs, as well as strategies for combining AS5678 with other product testing.

Speakers:
Andy Brown, RFID Operations Coordinator, Sun Microsystems
Jim DelRossi, Founder and CTO, ADR Advisors, Inc.

3:15 pm

Break

3:30 pm

RFID Commercialization for Aerospace and Defense-Progress and Future Outlook
Boeing has tested RFID systems on aircraft in flight, in order to determine what impact, if any, these systems have on navigational equipment. This session will explore RFID proof-of-concept implementations, as well as the Federal Aviation Administration's RFID regulations.

Speaker:
Kenneth Porad, Associate Technical Fellow and Program Manager, Boeing

4:00 pm

Question-and-Answer Session
At the conclusion of this workshop, presenters will provide answers to attendees' queries..
