BAE Systems, an international defense, aerospace and security company, has deployed three RFID-enabled projects in its Electronic Warfare Integrated Manufacturing Center (EW-IMC): automated point-of-use (POU) material inventory replenishment, automated asset and tool tracking, and automated work-in-process (WIP) tracking. The projects increased production capacity and capability in its supply chain and its factories, thereby ensuring the success of current and future production programs for its customers. Learn how the firm improved the utilization of existing capacity across its sites, boosting manufacturing capability and product flow, while creating a process to accelerate production transitions. In addition, hear how the use of RFID technology may be expanded to...

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)has launched a passive low-frequency (LF) RFID tracking system at the Lower Granite Dam's Ogee spillway. The system captures the unique identity of thousands of salmon and steelhead at a distance of 1 meter or more underwater as the fish pass by at approximately 47 miles per hour on their way to the Pacific Ocean's Columbia Basin.The RFID antenna array that captures that data is permanently built into Spillway 1 at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)'s Lower Granite Dam. Key takeaways: Hear why the resulting data from the system will help researchers understand the number of salmon surviving to spawn, as well as when problems in the fish's life cycle might occur. Learn how the installation of an...
