Tego Releases Next Generation of RFID Tags for Aviation Industry

Tego Becomes the Only Solution Provider of RFID Chips, Tags and Software for Flyable Parts

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - Tego Inc., the leading developer of high memory RFID chips, tags and software, announced today the next generation of flight-certified tags compliant with SAE AS5678 requirements and the ATA Spec 2000 standard. These are the TegoTag™ Nemo™, Primo™, Largo™ and Halo™, having different size and form to handle a wide variety of flyable parts. The on-metal tags range from the smallest (Nemo, covering less than 0.2 in2/1.3cm2, to medium size (Primo, 1.0 in2/6.1cm2) and the largest (Largo, 1.7 in2/10.8cm2). TegoTag Halo is a flexible tag that comes with two different attachment types. All TegoTags are manufactured according to ISO 9001 and AS/EN/JISQ 9100 quality standards and available for immediate purchase. TegoTags are compliant with the latest ATA Spec 2000-2013 standard, including single-record, dual-record and multi-record formats. Furthermore, the tags have ruggedized chip memory that will last more than 30 years and withstand repeated temperature extremes, long-term radiation exposure, altitude effects and even degaussing.

"Another major breakthrough with our new tags is that they are 15%-30% lower in price than any other rival tags for flyable parts," said Timothy Butler, CEO of Tego. "This now clearly puts Tego in the position of providing the best-performing and lowest-priced, high memory aviation tags on the market today."

The launch of TegoTags further underscores Tego's unique position as the world's only fully-integrated, complete-solution provider of high memory RFID chips, tags and software. Development of TegoTag is a natural progression and timely execution of Tego's corporate mission as the pioneer and leader in aerospace RFID solutions. Starting in 2008, Tego launched TegoView™ the first RFID software compliant with ATA Spec 2000 and thereby ensured interoperability for high memory RFID chips. Later, in 2010, Tego began selling the TegoChip™, becoming the trusted provider of high-memory, passive, RFID chip approved for flyable parts.
