At any given moment, an airport is filled with thousands of people, staff members, and pieces of equipment. ThinkAero.io ’s universal infrastructure provides a single, open platform to enable all of Airport’s use cases, making us the smarter Airport technology investment.

Our offering is precise, versatile and cost-effective. They enable Airport applications such as security and protection, environmental and temperature monitoring, asset tracking/ management, staff locating, maintenance compliance monitoring and business process automation, among others.

The ThinkAero.io solution is fit for both environments and enables maintaining the required level of visibility even in these challenging Airports facilities. See how location, status and condition data of assets (i.e. staff, dollies, shipping containers, racks, carriers, vehicles) can boost operational efficiency and drive profitability in Airport environments indoors or outdoors, including the terminal, yards, parking lots, transportation hubs, warehouses centers.

Automated Management of Equipment and Labor in Aiport


Personnel Accountability and Movement Tracking

Our active RF employee badge tags are designed to be durable and simple to update with any important employee information. When new hires are brought in, use our software to assign that person an ID tag and tie it with information, such as their name and position with the company, airline or contractor. ThinkAero.io integrate these tags with Airport security systems and other logistics software. ID tags locate each staff member and can automatically validate identity when they enter secure areas, allow the airline to keep track of employee hours, and even indicate whether an employee is at work or on a break by their location.


By collecting sensor telemetry data and using our advanced Condition Monitoring algorithms, are able to filter out non-vital data to accurately portray trend-line information, predict failure and provide alerts so that remedial actions can be scheduled before an equipment is about to stop functioning, thereby reducing downtime and avoiding lost capacity. Maintenance and replacements can be scheduled based on trendline and predictive analysis. The key to effective monitoring is not just collecting relevant data in real-time, but allowing you to act on this data immediately.

The use of returnable transport items (pallets, roll cages, returnable plastic containers, tote boxes, ingredients bins, dollies, IBCs, etc) is an increasing phenomenon in the modern supply chain, with companies constantly seeking to reduce costs, increase handling efficiencies and improve environmental responsibility through less waste.

Increasingly stringent traceability regulation worldwide requires companies not only to provide a complete audit of product and ingredients movement in the supply chain but also compels them to track secondary packaging and materials handling equipment flows associated with product shipment. In addition, the supply chain suffers significant costs annually, associated with the loss of equipment/assets and their subsequent replacement.

SmartX Hub® offers an affordable and efficient way to get the greatest value from RTI inventories.
RFID tags on each individual unit make it possible to accurately and automatically track its movement, using fixed readers at strategic in-and-out portals at the distribution center or mobile devices (handheld, cellphones, tablets) readers for mobile read points at remote /customer facilities.

Use cases

Automatic Alerts

The ThinkAero airport Location Platform allows airports to set up control zones and automatic alerts for a variety of business purposes. This Solution can alert you when an employee enters an area they aren’t allowed in, or attempts to use a piece of equipment they aren’t qualified to handle. The system can also trigger an alert when certain tags leave control areas, such as equipment being taken out of the airport. ThinkAero can also provide tamper evident tags that trigger alerts if someone attempts to remove them too.

Asset Management & Optimization

For manufacturers, a tool or parts crib is essential to the manufacturing process, where employees can find indirect materials like tools that are crucial components in their daily workflow. With Smartx Hub® implementation, you can realize several benefits like improved tool maintenance and optimization as the repair history for each tool is now automatically tracked and recorded and increased efficiency and employee productivity.

RFID guides your Staff through our plant

Using wearable tags at the uniform, or personnel tags such as lanyards and ID badges that are integrated with Smart Sensors technology. With Smartx Hub® you can track your staff as they move throughout different locations, areas or zones. Each tag is given a unique Personnel ID, which means each person can be identified, increasing workplace safety, especially in emergency situations where knowing workers presence is vital. The garment first passes over a reader antenna fixed into a counter and zone detection.

Equipment Utilization and Control

Web-based graphical interface provides user friendly mapping tools for tagged assets. Users can easily search for parts, assembly carts, toolkits, measurement machines, and other equipment, view their real-time and historical location, and create custom reports.

Yard Management

By placing a small RFID tag on the cars, you can automatically identify and log the cars and other vehicles that enter the parking, premises or any other designated area. Create greater efficiency with a Smartx Hub® solution for yard management. Better synchronize your yard operations, loading docks and gate check-in with actionable and optional real-time intelligence. With Smartx Hub® you can ensure a continuous flow of material, parcels and goods to your distribution centers or manufacturing plants, keeping your costs down.

Tools and Equipment Tracking

RFID UHF technology provides unparalleled speed and accuracy advantages compared to bar code and other RFID technologies for tracking tools and spare parts in production processes and stock rooms. Assurance that the right tools and trays are available when and where they are needed. Serialized RFID equipments, case and pallet-level inventory management greatly increases accuracy, speed and traceability over traditional barcode systems.
