Defense/Aerospace Track Sessions

Tuesday, May 2
11:15 am Meeting the Dept. of Defense's RFID Mandate
Panelists explain how to become compliant with the U.S. Department of Defense's requirements for tagging shipments and some high-value items. Panelists also discuss how companies can move tagging back in their operations to achieve benefits.

  Alan Webber, Senior Analyst, Government, Forrester Research
How to meet DOD tagging requirements
Where you can benefit internally from tagging DOD shipments
12:05 pm Securing RFID Systems—EPC Generation 2 and the New
     Challenges and Threats in RFID Security

In this session, Dr. Ravi Pappu, ThingMagic co-founder and leading RFID security expert, will discuss how to identify the security threats in an RFID system; where Generation 2 is secure; where Generation 2 is vulnerable; and what's next for RFID security.
  Ravi Pappu, Co-founder, ThingMagic
2:45 pm Meeting RFID Mandates From Boeing & Airbus
Boeing and Airbus have developed special tagging requirements to meet their needs. This session explains what you must do to become compliant with the airplane manufacturers' requirements for tagging parts. Panelists also explain how companies can move tagging back in their operations to achieve benefits.
  Kenneth Porad, Associate Technical Fellow, Boeing
How to meet Boeing and Airbus's tagging requirements
How to deploy 13.56 MHz tags in challenging clinical environments
3:35 pm DOD Compliance—Develop a Roadmap to Meet the DoD Mandates
The U.S. Department of Defense RFID and UID compliance mandates are in place. Learn how your company can efficiently and effectively meet the compliance objectives. This interactive session will focus on developing a roadmap and high-level project plan that incorporates best practices for compliance and RFID project management. The project plan and roadmap we develop as a group will be emailed to each of the attendees to be used as a template to develop a DoD compliance roadmap for your organization.

Wednesday, May 3
11:45 am Enhance Warehouse Worker Productivity and Asset Utilization
     with Forklift Mounted Systems

Imagine a mobile RFID system capable of providing powerful real-time location information and RFID tracking capabilities throughout the real-world environment of a warehouse. Join us for this session and learn about unique advantages delivered by forklift mounted RFID systems. In addition to being less disruptive to business processes, forklift RFID systems can drastically reduce deployment costs. During this session we will talk about RTLS (real time location service), which enables real time monitoring of inventory moves resulting in increased accuracy, reduced inspection costs and increased asset utilization through scheduled maintenance and asset tracking.

1:55 pm Virgin Atlantic Airways Tracks High Value Parts
Virgin Atlantic Airways tagged airplane components in its Heathrow Airport warehouse in a pilot study last year in London. The airline reports on the test of RFID and how it affected the time spent searching for missing high-value parts for the servicing of airplanes. Less time locating parts means less expense. Virgin is considering expanding the program to its other warehouses, which would enable employees to locate parts they need anywhere in the world.
  Mark Butler, Systems Implementation Manager, Virgin Atlantic
Insights into how different RFID technologies perform in challenging manufacturing environments
How to tag high-value metal parts
How to integrate RFID data with existing parts tracking systems
2:45 pm Finding Internal ROI From RFID
Spirit AeroSystems, a 76-year-old former division of Boeing, uses RFID internally to tag parts, track work in process, and automated decision-making (informing workers which process to perform as parts are scanned). Its next goal is to find ways to integrate RFID with its suppliers and vendors to achieve benefits for all.
  Debbie Fogg, RFID Project Manager, SPIRIT AeroSystems
How to integrate RFID data on work in process with legacy systems
Benefits of tracking of parts and tools with RFID
3:35 pm Using RFID to track HAZMAT
NASA is using UHF RFID system linked with temperature sensors to track the location, handling and condition of potentially dangerous chemicals. The result: improved management, security and safety of hazardous materials.
