The aviation industry is seeking for improvements in baggage tracking, cargo tracking, passenger satisfaction, and airplane safety to name just a few. Increased passengers also bring congestion, cost pressures and tougher security regulations, making it more difficult to track and trace bags. The aviation industry faces the daunting task of increasing customer value without increasing total operational costs. On one hand safety, transparency and accuracy in tracking passenger bags, freight, and vital airplane components are crucial yet total costs cannot rise. This is where RAIN RFID technology comes in.

Data accuracy and aircraft safety
In today’s complex global supply chain tracking of freight is a must. The tracking process must be accurate, efficient and automated to the greatest degree possible. There is also a need for centralized monitoring, automatic logging and an accurate retrieval process of not only the freight but also at an item level on the freight. Aircrafts have valuable assets which need to be tracked and maintained for smoother operation.
It is required that the airplane’s parts and services are current. The supply chain of the aircraft parts is complex and goes through multiple vendors. Firstly, aircraft manufacturers, airlines, tier suppliers, logistics providers to name a few. Therefore, the need to offer parts tracking and traceability throughout their service life to ensure data accuracy and aircraft safety over long periods of time are needed.
