Automatic Identification Technology for Aerospace and Aviation

GlobeRanger’s M2M-enabled and RFID solutions for Aerospace

GlobeRanger’s industry leading AIT (Automatic Identification Technologies) solutions support all aspects of the aerospace industry. This includes:

  • EEM (Emergency Equipment Management)
  • MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul)
  • Manufacturing WIP (Work in Process)
  • Warehouse management
  • Supply chain integration

Achieve optimum efficiency with GlobeRanger’s advanced solutions for Aerospace

Using our Asset Watching and Reporting Engine, GR-AWARE™, aerospace and aviation companies can manage an increasing amount of inventory of rotable spares, expendables, consumables, and a general lack of visibility throughout the value stream.

Using GR-AWARE™ you can manage data from multiple sources, including:

  • RFID tags
  • M2M devices
  • Internet-of-Things devices
  • ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning)
  • Enterprise applications

How GlobeRanger’s RFID solutions have helped the Aerospace industry

GR-AWARE helps optimize processes and eliminate redundant tasks. It significantly reduces lead times and labor costs for maintenance, inspection, reporting, inventory management and other day-to-day activities.

GlobeRanger can help you build the foundation for improving visibility by RFID-enabling your parts, components, tools, equipment and other assets.

GlobeRanger is a full-service organization, offering complete tagging and consulting services, we can configure software solutions to run independently or integrate with your host systems.

GlobeRanger has a complete range of RFID tags, readers and supporting software specifically engineered for aerospace industry requirements. This includes high-memory tags that support SPEC2000 data formats for parts tracking.

GlobeRanger’s ATA Spec 2000 compliant asset tagging and management solutions eliminate wasteful maintenance processes and increase throughput. They enable individual or groups of aircraft components to communicate identity, location, serviceability, maintenance history and other information.

RFID-enabled maintenance replaces lengthy manual and visual processes to enable ICA (Instructions for Continued Airworthiness) compliance.

With GlobeRanger’s iMotion Edgeware, supported applications and devices allow the completion of assigned tasks whether or not there is network connectivity.

Automatic Identification Technology (AIT) features & benefits

The following table summarizes key features and benefits provided by GlobeRanger’s aerospace solutions.

Features Benefits
Enable Better Logistic Decision Support Choose what data will be communicated back to host systems for analysis and archiving.Flexible data collection and processing at the edge allows you to filter input so you can manage by exception and receive real-time notification when user-determined thresholds are reached.
Improve Maintenance Efficiency RFID-enabled maintenance replaces lengthy manual   and visual processes to enable ICA (Instructions for Continued Airworthiness) compliance
Emergency Equipment Management Makes inspecting emergency equipment a hands-off process. Instead of manually handling each piece of equipment, technicians can simply walk through the aircraft with a mobile RFID reader.It will automatically confirm that emergency equipment is present and serviceable, alerting if anything is missing.
Rotable and Repairable Management Enables real-time locating and chain of custody tracking of serialized rotable components and other high value aircraft parts from the removal of the component to its reinstallation on the aircraft.
Aging Airframe Management Enables realtime tracking and management of gradual airframe structural degradation resulting in reduced time to decision on structural repairs.
Tools and Ground Support Equipment Optimize facilities with better visibility of key inventory and assets utilization

RFID Aerospace solutions

GlobeRanger is a pioneer in the development of edge technology and solutions used in many industries including aerospace, energy, manufacturing, defense and supply chain.

Our aerospace solutions are the product of 10 years collaboration with major airlines, aircraft and component OEMs, technology standards organizations and aviation regulatory authorities. We offer a suite of pre- built applications and development tools to enable rapid deployment and time to value.

Our Visual Device Emulator simulates the real-world behavior of tags, readers and sensor devices, to enable actual deployment scenarios to be modelled prior to equipment purchase. This eliminates dependence on physical hardware for development, testing and integration of RFID systems.

Our real-world experience combined with highly configurable and scalable software solutions and tools enables us to create and integrate solutions quickly to minimize deployment cost.
