SnowWize is an enhancement to XSight's FODetect®. SnowWize is an automated snow measurement solution, which remotely and accurately measures snow levels across the runway in real time. SnowWize alerts the user when levels exceed pre-defined thresholds and provides a live view and clear visualization of snow on the runway, facilitating a more focused and efficient winter operations effort. To maximize efficiency and resource management, SnowWize is connected to a real-time weather forecast system. This enables the solution to initiate automatically when inclement weather is forecasted, closely monitoring snow levels without operator intervention. SnowWize replaces the manual old methods of measuring snow with a ruler and a snowboard, saving the need to physically drive to the runway and lowers operational overhead. Automated and remote snow measurement on runways greatly improves overall runway safety, runway availability and enhances winter operations.
