OATSystems launched the latest version of its ATASpec2000 compliant RFID asset tracking solution for aerospace manufactures and maintenance providers. The company also announced its first set of customers will be tagging and tracking component parts subject to ATA Spec2000 at the point of manufacture.
The OATS solution will generate a unique birth record for each part and capture part manufacturing details and ongoing maintenance history on a high-memory RFID tag, which will be attached to the part through its useful life. All interested parties will have access to that information throughout the part’s lifetime, whether it is moving between facilities in shipping and receiving processes or being installed, inspected, removed or repaired.
Established by international industry associations representing airlines, manufacturers, suppliers and repair agencies, ATA Spec 2000 enables information exchange between key stakeholders involved in the manufacture, repair and operation of commercial and military aircraft.
The OAT solution is ideal for maintenance and repair organizations, which may not have Internet access in the field, such as airline industries. The information is easily obtained directly from the tag without any connectivity issues.
