  11. 11. Why Data matrix?• Withstands the harshest environment• Damage up to 20%+ of the symbol and recover 100%• Size is only limited by fidelity of marker• Can contain 100 times the data as the same space as a linear bar code• Can be read omni-directionally
  12. 12. Robustness of Data MatrixData Matrix can be any size 12 marking types subjected to low earth orbit environments Overhaul Test Manned Flight Test LEO Tests
  13. 13. Structural Elements of a Data Matrix • Solid Border • Broken Border Quiet Zone around • Data Storage the borders • Quiet Zone Data Matrix symbol shown complete Solid Border Broken Border Data Storage
  14. 14. Marking Techniques Laser Dot Peen Thermal PrintInk Jet
