KYOCERA designs and manufactures new ultra-small robust ceramic UHF RFID Tags for tool tracking in Aerospace industry

KYOCERA’s new ultra-high frequency RFID transponder is appliable to metal and – due to its robust ceramic package – suitable for reliable tool tracking within the aerospace industry.

Kyoto/London - Within the Aerospace industry, safety issues have special importance. In case of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services of aircrafts and spaceships, any object that is not where it is supposed to be provides a high risk to safety. These foreign objects include, among others, metal tools used for maintenance services by MRO service providers which are forgotten after servicing the aircraft. If metal tools are left behind in an aircraft after repair services, there exists a high risk of so-called ‘Foreign Object Damage (FOD)’. This describes damages caused by foreign objects that impair the quality, functionality, or economic value, of an aircraft. Estimations show that FOD costs within the aerospace industry amount to some billion Euro per year worldwide.
