FAA Approves GlobalRanger RFID Solution
[Avionics Today 01-25-2016] GlobeRanger has received a letter of Operational Suitability from the FAA AFS 300 Aircraft Maintenance Division for its aviation Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) solution. The GlobeRanger Aviation RFID system is a supplemental aircraft maintenance program encompassing multiple RFID-based airborne and ground-based applications including: emergency equipment management, rotables and repairables management, aging airframe management, and tool management.
Coupled with its GlobeRanger’s Asset Watching And Reporting Engine (GR-AWARE) software suite, RFID-based system allows airlines to perform non-line-of-sight inspections of aircraft safety equipment and track aircraft assets such as rotable and repairable components through their entire lifecycle. On the ground, the GR-AWARE system is coupled with the operator's enterprise resource planning system to provide fleet-wide situational awareness, which enables management and forward deployment of replacement spares as well as continuous, real-time as-flying airplane configuration.
