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 which are forgotten after servicing the aircraft. In order to avoid FOD, Kyocera’s robust ceramic UHF RFID tags are especially suited to identification and tracking of metal tools. RFID tags will be attached to workshop tools of MRO service providers in order to stay on the tool for its entire lifetime. The attached tag will withstand harsh environments including impacts and dirt (oil, fuel, lubricants, etc.) without negative effects on the reading performance. By using RFID tags, MRO providers are able to decrease the probability of forgetting tools in sensitive areas of an airplane. Apart from tracking metal workshop tools, it is also possible to trace aircraft components with RFID technology.
