Proposal of Intelligent Inventory System for Space Station with IC Tag - Near Real-Time Onboard Inventory Management
Difficulty in inventory management on space station has been known since 1980’s but still is a new problem. We propose the expanded application of IC tags for the International Space Station inventory management. Use of multiple RFID tags can monitor package use status. Where electromagnetic interference or poor radio propagation is a problem, we may apply ultrasound tags.
