Increased use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) in the aerospace industry in the area of maintenance, supply chain, and logistics has led to increasing demand for, and subsequent development of, flyable UHF Passive, RFID tags. Aerospace industry adoption of RFID technology will be enhanced significantly by standardization of these RFID tags.
The requirements for RFID tags to be used in the aerospace industry are different from many non-aviation uses. The aerospace industry requires a combination of reading and writing across both moderate and long distances, and which range from low cost, disposable, low memory tags, to extremely durable, higher memory tags that are expected to last the life of the product to which they attach. It is expected that these RFID tags will fulfill the promise of data automation for accuracy and cost savings. Furthermore, the aerospace industry is subject to unique considerations regarding qualification, regulations, and safety, which are enforced by national authorities such as the FAA, EASA, FCC, etc.
