Abstract:

Radio Frequency Identification RFID technology has advanced greatly in the last fifteen years, providing greater applications at decreased cost when compared to years previous. Applications of RFID technology include asset tracking, tool accountability, work-in-process tracking, and inventory management, among a myriad of other established uses and future applications. In commercial industry, RFID technology has been proven to increase safety, improve efficiency of operations, thus reducing operating costs. Although the Air Force has seen some success in implementing RFID technology, there has yet to be a solution that has been implemented Air Force-wide. This research paper investigates the advancements in RFID technology over the last fifteen years and seeks to determine whether or not an RFID application can be implemented Air Force-wide to improve safety, efficiency, and reduce operating costs.
