Fujitsu RFID Integrated Labels meet the SAE AS5678 standard (*1), the rigorous standard applied to aircraft components for quality, and conform to ATA Spec 2000 standard ver. 2013 (*2), the standard data format of the aircraft industry. The labels are available in two types: 1-KB and 8-KB memory, and in three sizes (large/medium/small). Usable with metal and non-metal items, they can be applied to components produced by hundreds of parts vendors around the world. Read range is approximately 1.5 meter, and the labels support the frequency ranges used in the US and Europe.
Fujitsu has also been working to enhance its solution offerings, such as with RFID readers, encoding and printing solutions and system integration for customers' existing ERPs. This should lead to greater visibility of component-related operations for the entire aviation industry, including parts suppliers, aircraft manufacturers, airlines and MROs. Please see (http://www.fujitsu.com/global/solutions/ait/) for more details.
Fujitsu is ready to receive orders for labels and all related products, which will be commercially available in the market from June 1, 2014.
Fujitsu looks forward to working with Airbus to drive RFID implementation for the aviation industry as its strategic partner.
