Convergence Systems (CSL) will support Hong Kong International Airport’s (HKIA) effort to implement radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies in the airport’s terminal 1.

The new contract will enable the airport to use RFID tags to improve efficiency and security in the new terminal.

ETI Consulting (ETIC), Jardine Engineering Corporation (JEC) and Shun Hing Systems Integration Corporation (SHSI) have awarded the contracts to CSL to provide the latest UHF gen-2 RFID equipment that will support ETIC’s supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software for the RFID implementation process at the terminal.

The Hong Kong Government Permanent Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development (Communications and Technology) Duncan Pescod said that RFID was one of the key enabling technologies supported by the government’s R&D Centre on Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

According to Hong Kong technical services, the team of CSL, JEC, SHSI and ETIC has the right expertise to provide required hardware and software support for the RFID implementation.

CSL managing director Jerry Garrett said that HKIA recognised the CS461 four-port reader and matched antennas could handle the dense mode operating environment and reliability demands of the Hong Kong Airport.
