How does tracking aircraft safety equipment work?
Each tag is registered on a central database against the individual asset. The database also contains additional information about the asset such as batch number, serial number, expiration date, required maintenance dates and more.
The presence of tags and therefore the relating assets can simply be detected with a handheld RFID reader which can capture information from multiple tags per second.
Detecting interference with emergency equipment
By using tamper-evident RFID tags on life vest pouches the system can also highlight when a vest has been removed from its bag. These specialist tags seal the pouch and stop sending a signal once the pouch has been opened. This enables cabin staff to easily locate and check any equipment which potentially has been tampered with.
