The article focuses on radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. The author inferred that the adoption of RFID technology by various industries, including airline firms, have been very slow because of the implementation costs, resistance to switching from existing technology, and budgetary demands. Pratt & Whitney manager Dave Loda stated that aerospace does not readily embrace RFID without extensive testing because the amount of investment required is very significant.
