FODetect™ is an automated FOD detection solution with superb detection capabilities deriving from a unique integrated optical-radar sensing technology, advanced image processing software and close range detection. The system is embedded in Surface Detection Units (SDUs) that are co-located with the runway edge lights for easy installation. FODetect increases runway safety by utilizing high performance detection together with scanning between air movements and ascription competencies. FODetect increases runway capacity– it can add up to four slots/hour by providing FOD visualization and interrogation capabilities, which in turn optimize FOD retrieval. FODetect increases operational efficiency by providing security and surveillance capabilities using its optic sensor giving you real-time monitoring capacity on all your runways.
This implementation of an automated FOD detection system at Seattle-Tacoma Airport will be only the second automated FOD detection system that has been installed in a U.S. airport and that is fully operational.
