A one day Forum focused on automated identification technologies in the aerospace industry will take place in Cambridge on Wednesday 20 June. The forum will explore current and future trends in automated identification technologies and is open to any interested members of the industry and its supply base.
The Forum is the result of a major research programme, the Aerospace ID Technologies Programme, led by the Cambridge Auto-ID Centre. This independent research initiative has been undertaken in collaboration with a range of international companies including Boeing, Airbus and Embraer.
The Forum will help companies discover the impact of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and other identification technologies on:

It was opened in 2000 with Professor Duncan McFarlane as Research Director. The Centre is a highly successful and unique partnership between almost 100 global companies and seven of the world's leading research universities, working with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging.
The Centre launched the Aerospace ID Technologies Programme, with Professor McFarlane as Research Director. An industry-led independent research initiative the Programme provides answers to key deployment challenges to automated ID in the Aerospace sector. It is funded entirely by industry and is made up of a number of discrete, finite research projects each centred on a particular aspect of the technology and its application.
The programme is aimed at aircraft manufacturers, their first and second tier suppliers, operators, owners, Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) organisations, and government procurement agencies. It is also of immediate interest to any organisation for which the configuration control of life-limited and rotable components in aircraft, the problem of counterfeit part substitution and the potential for more automated production and distribution are major issues. The Aerospace ID Technologies Programme brings together the collective expertise of the Auto-ID Labs around the world.
