RFID TagSource Launches AeroTag Specialty RFID Tags for Aerospace and Defense

New High Memory Tags Designed to Support Air Transport Association Standards

CAMDEN, NJ--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - RFID TagSource, a leading provider of RFID tagging solutions for high value assets, today announced the development of the AeroTag family of high memory passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags. These new tags have been developed within the guidelines put forth by the Air Transport Association (ATA) and will meet ATA Spec2000 and SAE-AS5678 specifications. With 4 kilobytes of memory and a lightweight rugged design, these tags are particularly well-suited for manufacturers supporting the Airbus A350 XWB RFID initiative.

"The AeroTag has been designed to address an identified need for storing maintenance history information directly on aircraft parts," said Kevin Donahue, Managing Director of RFID TagSource. "There are a number of initiatives underway in the aerospace industry that cannot be supported using generally available lower memory tags. The combination of our new high memory and our partner's lower memory offerings has RFID TagSource uniquely positioned to serve the broad set of needs for RFID Technologies across the aerospace and defense industry."

The new AeroTag product line features integrated circuits from Tego, the premier provider of high memory passive RFID chip solutions that meet the ATA Spec2000 specification. AeroTags outfitted with Tego silicon can be configured to store up to 32 kilobytes of data.

"Tego chips are the first generally available integrated circuits capable of supporting the Airbus RFID program," said Tego CEO Tim Butler. "We have been working with the RFID TagSource team for several months and the global performance they have been able to get with our chip is impressive; RFID TagSource has really stepped up to support aerospace industry RFID initiatives."

The AeroTag products will be available in several configurations to meet specific customer needs. Pre-production tags are available now with full production quantities available in the first quarter of 2011.
