The U.S. Department of Defense, as well as airplane manufacturers Boeing and Airbus, have deployed RFID systems to improve their supply chains and operations. This track will focus on the benefits the agencies are achieving, and discuss how their suppliers are meeting tagging mandates and achieving benefits, both internally and across their supply chains.

Using AIT-enabled Distribution to Support the War Effort
By leveraging the supply relationships of its suppliers and customers, using new and exciting technologies, and integrating RFID into more of its logistics footprint and processes, the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) will soon provide improved visibility beyond just receiving goods into inventory. In this session, learn how this capability will deliver improved availability, trust, responsiveness, speed and efficiency within the defense supply chain to support the war effort.
Speaker:Mark Lieberman, AIT Program Manager, U.S. Defense Logistics Agency
Takeaways:• How existing implementations have demonstrated the value of automatic identification technology in the defense supply chain

Tracking Assets at NASA's Kennedy Space Center
Even a small tool left on the launch pad at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center could potentially damage a spacecraft during liftoff, jeopardizing a mission. To prevent tools from being left behind by workers, Boeing has employed a real-time location system. Hear how the system reduces the time spent inventorying tools, by enabling them to search for a specific tool, or to perform an inventory of all tagged items at the facility, quickly and cost-effectively, thereby reducing labor costs and increasing flight safety.

U.S. Navy pRFID Challenges and Keys to Success
Navy AIT is moving quickly to RFID-enable its operations and significantly enhance its productivity, while reducing operating and inventory costs. The Navy AIT’s passive RFID program is expanding rapidly to include more than 100 Advanced Traceability and Control (ATAC) and commercial maintenance sites within the Navy’s repairables supply chain. Hear first-hand how the Navy is addressing complex Information Assurance (IA) and NMCI requirements, and how it developed an enterprise RFID architecture.

Improving Inventory Accuracy at Luke AFB With RFID
The 56th Security Forces Squadron (SFS) at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Ariz., replaced a bar-code tracking system at its 25,000-square-foot storage warehouse with an RFID solution, to better manage equipment inventory for staff members on the base and personnel deployed abroad. Hear how the system generates an inventory list at the supply desk, thereby providing inventory traceability and minimizing the time needed to process and log inventory levels.

DOD RFID Update: Progress Report on the World's First RFID-Enabled Supply Chain
The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) is now five years into its effort to transform its supply chain using both active and passive RFID technologies. In this session, a panel of experts will provide an in-depth update regarding the rollout’s progress, both within the United States and overseas. In addition, attendees will gain insights into the next stages of the deployment, and have their questions answered by experts.
Moderator:Mary Ann Wagner, President, XIO Strategies
Panelists:Robert Bacon, Program Director, Navy Automatic Identification Technology
Takeaways:• How to employ automatic data-capture technologies to build trust in supply chain operations

U.S. Navy's RFID HERO Risk Mitigation and Shipboard Demonstration
The use of radio frequency (RF) emitters on Navy platforms and facilities poses the potential risk of inadvertently detonating or dudding ordnance, or of creating electromagnetic interference (EMI) to sensitive electronic systems. Such usages are regulated in order to assure both safety and operational compatibility. In this session, hear how ordnance risks are managed by the Naval Ordnance Safety and Security Activity (NOSSA), through the Navy's Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO) program. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is achieved through acquisition controls that impart compliance testing to verify operation in the expected electromagnetic environment (EME).
Speaker:Mike Slocum, E3 Assessments and Evaluations, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, U.S. Navy
Takeaways:• How safety and compatibility are achieved by imparting frequency-dependent amplitude restrictions upon RFID equipment
