An internet portal promoting standardisation of radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology for tracking aircraft parts has won the backing of Airbus and Boeing. The Antenna portal, a joint effort between Siemens Business Services and Sopheon, is expected to become the industry's platform for RFID standardisation. A subscription-based, password-protected service, Antenna will enable Airbus and Boeing to publish their own RFID requirements to suppliers.
