FAA Publish RFID Tagging Guidelines

cabin-services-worldwideThe recent publication of the ‘Airworthiness Approval of Installed Passive Ultra-High Frequency Radio Frequency Identification’ has offered comprehensive guidance for the use and installation of RFID tags on aircraft parts and components. The guide includes information for passive RFID tags only and not those that use communication via satellite, cell phone or wireless tech.

RFID tags are increasing in popularity and usage, in all areas of technology – from retail shopping to airline baggage tagging.

Some humanitarian groups are concerned with the levels of data that can be stored within the tags, but there is little doubt about the increased security the new types of tags can deliver.
