LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Sept. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zebra Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq:ZBRA), a recognized global leader in technologies that extend real-time visibility into business operations, today announced its participation at the SAE Aerospace Manufacturing and Automated Fastening Conference & Exhibition [booth #213]. Zebra's extensive solutions allow end users to track and manage assets to help improve operational efficiencies in the aerospace industry. At the conference, Zebra will highlight RFID and  real time locating solutions (RTLS) for asset tracking and  lean manufacturing through demonstrations and speaking engagements. "We're actively listening to our customers, who crave not only smarter ways to track and manage assets, but also insights that can drive better decision-making and innovation in their organizations," said Matt Seltz, Director of Sales, Zebra Technologies North America. "We are working with our valued customers in the aerospace industry to provide the right technologies and solutions that help them gain more visibility into their supply chains, and in turn, create new value from that visibility." Zebra will display its  IEEE compliant Dart ultra-wideband (UWB) tag and provide a first-hand view of its value for the aerospace sector. The demonstration will illustrate how users can build a system based on the open standard of IEEE 802.15.4f to enable the use of multiple types of technology. Zebra's Dart UWB solutions help end users accurately track personnel and equipment indoors and outside at the lowest cost-of-ownership in the industry. In addition, Zebra will also showcase products and solutions including:

  • RTLS Tracking & Management – UWB Tags and Sensors, APEX Tools (Zebra partner): Zebra will demonstrate the range of its tool tracking capabilities; APEX tools will be paired with Zebra's Dart tags which will be used to control usage (e.g., when the marked tool is in a certain zone it will function and when it is removed from the zone it will cease to function).
