Asset tracking in space?

NASA plans to use RFID technology in space sometime in the near future. Even if the infamous $100,000 tool bag that floated into space this week from the International Space Station carried an RFID tag, the technology wouldn’t have helped in this case. However, the tool disappearance demonstrates perfectly the asset tracking capabilities of RFID. If that tool bag disappeared at the Kennedy Space Center, NASA would know exactly where it is.

 

That’s the entire goal of the recent Phase 2 RFID rollout at Kennedy Space Center. By the end of February, NASA will be able to track in real time not only high dollar assets, but thousands of tool items in NASA’s instrument library.  It used to take about three hours to complete a full tool inventory when Boeing workers finished a job on the launch pad. During that time, the work of about 100 NASA employees was on hold. With RFID, NASA and Boeing workers can account for all tools immediately upon conclusion of the job.

 

What about using RFID in space? “We get asked that question a lot,” said Phil Lintereur, a CAPPS fluids, avionics and propulsion manager for Boeing at Kennedy Space Center. “That will definitely be one of the thrusts for the future. Numerous NASA people have asked us about that and I’d say we’ll be pursuing that in the future.”
