Savi Gets U.S. Air Force OK to Use RFID on Cargo Aircraft

The U.S. Air Force has approved use of Savi Technology's RFID asset tracking tags and security devices aboard all sizes and classifications of fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft that transport supplies for the U.S. Department of Defense. Certification followed extensive tests determining that they did not interfere with onboard avionics, such as radios, navigation or flight instruments.

RFID tags from Savi Technology, a Lockheed Martin company, have been used successfully for years aboard U.S. military aircraft under other certification programs, but USAF's certification now broadens their use.

"U.S. Air Force certification of our broad portfolio of RFID tags extends the ability of the DoD to further automate monitoring of its supplies end to end across all modes of transportation," says David Stephens, chief executive officer of Savi Technology. "This clearance provides further validation that Savi's RFID devices can be safely used aboard government or commercial aircraft to improve the efficiency, security and condition of in-transit supplies."
