NASA has installed an RFID system at its Langley Research Center in Virginia, designed and deployed by DataSpan Inc.
The newly installed system will be used to take inventory of critical data center assets like servers, switches, racks and other associated equipment. In addition, the RFID solution will be used to manage the movement of laboratory and testing equipment as it period moves between the Langley facility and various field project locations.
The RFID solution implemented by DataSpan utilizes a combination of CS101 handhelds and three different types of EPC Global Class 1 Gen 2 tags. Most items are tagged with Omni ID metal mount tags, while smaller lab assets are tagged with Sontec metal mount tags and individual offices identified with UPM Raflatec Gen2 labels.
