NASA Scientists Use RAIN RFID to Monitor Spacecraft Temperatures

Impinj Monza X-8K Dura tag chip allows NASA to wirelessly monitor hull temperatures on upcoming mission spacecraft. NASA needed a new way to gather critical sensor data on spacecraft while meeting their precise specifications. NASA considered many technologies, and ultimately, selected the Impinj Monza® X-8K Dura RAIN RFID tag chip for their sensor tag. The tag chip enables a durable, low-mass solution that can last for years without any regular maintenance. The solution provides: Low-mass that does not unnecessarily take up space Passive tags able to operate independently for years Ability to withstand harsh environments in space Tag chip that meets strict NASA requirements and quality assurance
