MAINtag Wins Thales RFID Contract

Thales has chosen MAINtag to provide a complete RFID package for the in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems which will go onboard all their contracted Airbus A350 XWB and A380 aircraft. The contract also covers various Boeing aircraft. MAINtag said new video displays and some servers would be tagged with its ‘FLYtag’ nano low-memory RFID tags. “From life vests, seats and oxygen systems, and now in-flight entertainment systems, the potential benefits of using RFID in aircraft cabin interiors are just being realised,” commented Alexis Beurdeley, VP of MAINtag, Inc. the US-based subsidiary of France-based MAINtag. “Teaming up with Thales helped bring innovative functionality to a growing interest in RFID for maintenance where data will come in larger volumes and accuracy of data management is essential.”
