Savi Technology’s RFID asset tracking and security devices have been approved by the U.S. Navy for all sizes and classifications of fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft that transport supplies for the U.S. Department of Defense.

The U.S. Air Force has approved usage of Savi Technology’s radio frequency identification (RFID) asset tracking and security devices aboard all sizes and classifications of fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft—government, commercial, passenger, or cargo—that transport supplies for the U.S. Department of Defense. Certification of Savi’s RFID devices followed extensive tests determining that they did not interfere with onboard avionics, such as radios, navigation, or flight instruments. RFID tags from Savi Technology have been used for years aboard U.S. military aircraft under other certification programs, but the USAF’s certification now broadens their usage aboard all kinds and sizes of aircraft throughout all the services. Eight of Savi’s RFID tags, which can be affixed to supplies, unit load devices, containers, pallets, and other transport conveyances, were approved under MIL-STD-46IF and MIL-STD-464A, which address electromagnetic interference.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
