With the emergence of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) as a tool to streamline the supply chain, the airline industry determined that a technology standard for both the RFID tag hardware and data needed to be developed. This is required so that industry-wide interoperability can be achieved. Fundamental requirements have been identified and agreed upon by the airline industry. These core requirements build the framework from which this standard was derived. The usage of an open standard UHF-RFID technology will benefit the entire airline industry. While the intent of this document is to address the usage of UHF-RFID tags on aircraft parts, the technology and benefits are applicable to other items that would be in airline inventory. To that extent, the term Product has been used in this standard. This document is specific to the requirements for and installation of UHF-RFID tags and does not address data usage or the tools and systems used to collect the data.
