JPL has partnered with the Houston Forensic Science Center and the Houston Police Department to develop several inventory and evidence tracking solutions. HFSC was recognized for "Best Use of RFID to Enhance a Product or Service at the the RFID Journal Live Conference. HFSC made the Global Finals with NASA and DELTA Airlines.
Pipeline Track, utilizing RFID technology, provided AECOM a cost effective solution that greatly improved data accuracy and collection time in the field during the inspection process. Data captured in electronic form was then used in the timely creation of inspection reports.
Weatherford Laboratories, a provider of rock and fluid analysis services for the oil and gas industry, is tracking earth samples via radio frequency identification as they move from the laboratory's warehouse to an offshore drill ship, and then back to the lab for testing and storage.
The Pipeline Track team possesses a wealth of intellectual property in the IT, logistics, and oil and gas industry. As such, we provide innovative RFID solutions for the implementation of asset and warehouse management systems in the oil and gas industry, serving both the domestic and international sectors.
Our pipeline construction clients want a solution that can track pipe joints, beginning from receiving it from the mill, all the way to the right-of-way (ROW).
There are hundreds of millions of power poles and components installed throughout the world. These structures serve as the backbone for delivering power to the consumer. The ability to locate and maintain those assets is a responsibility that lasts for many years. Comprehensive maintenance history of must be managed and accessible 24/7. Accurate and up to date records are critical to ensure the safety and reliability of those components.
We examine the "Pipeline Problem" - by explaining that there isn't just one problem but a series of them which can become a serious drain on resources, time and safety.
Current methods focus on identifying joints. We have used joints as the example throughout this paper but virtually everything we have said about using RFID on joints applies just as much to all other material and equipment used in the oil & gas market.
