RFID in Aerospace and Defense 2016 Report

November 13th, 2016 Features - Aerospace - Defense
By RFID Journal
Last month, RFID Journal held a conference and exhibition for the defense and aerospace sectors. View the presentations from the event.

Defense and aerospace firms around the world are utilizing radio frequency identification technologies to monitor tools and work-in-process (WIP). RFID Journal's RFID in Aerospace and Defense conference and exhibition, held on Oct. 20, 2016, in Long Beach, Calif., was designed to help businesses in these sectors use RFID and related technologies to comply with customer tagging requirements, improve WIP tracking, enhance supply chain operations and reduce overall costs.

The event featured case studies presented by companies already using RFID, designed to help attendees determine the best technology for their needs, learn best practices from early adopters, find the right partners and move forward with deployment. In addition, attendees had the opportunity to meet with the leading RFID companies, and to receive RFID Professional Institute Certified Associate training, provided by RFID4U. The one-day, fast-track training course combined lectures and hands-on lab exercises, and provided a functional understanding of the use of RFID readers, tags, printers and general-purpose input-output devices.

Recordings of RFID in Aerospace and Defense's speaker presentations are now available in RFID Journal's video library. Links to videos of the event's sessions are provided below, along with PDFs of the slides used in those presentations. Not all speakers have granted permission to have their presentations and/or slides archived.
