RFID Journal LIVE! Put RFID to Work

RFID Journal


Aerospace RFID Summit

The Aerospace RFID Summit 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.

RFID Basics
New to RFID? Here's your opportunity to gain a basic introduction to the fundamentals of the technology. The differences between the various classes of tags will be explained, including active and passive systems, and the need for additional IT systems to build upon RFID in real-world applications will be highlighted. The session will also include a 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 technologies, including the latest EPC Gen 2 standard, will be presented.
