  • An automated system to detect foreign object debris (FOD) on the center runway at Seattle-Tacoma International (SEA) puts the busy airport at the leading edge of routine airfield inspection and safety. The system uses high-definition cameras and radar technology to constantly inspect the newly reconstructed Runway 16C-34C for debris that can cause major damage if sucked into an aircraft engine.

    SEA is only the second U.S. airport to install the FODetect Solution, from Xsight Systems, and is the first to fully fund the project. Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston was the first to add the automated system.

  • A new foreign object detection (FOD) system has captured the emergency landing of a Beechcraft Queen Air after the nose wheel failed to lock down.

  • "It’s hard to get a better look at a runway incident than having dozens of steerable electro-optical cameras and millimeter-wave radars trained on the impending action. Among other uses of the automated surveillance systems, built by Xsight Systems, investigators could be eyewitnesses in real-time or after the fact what happens when a landing goes awry. ."
  • Boston Logan takes responsible safety measures to insure runway safety. FODetect by Xsight Systems helps Logan to make sure runways are clear for take off.

     

  • Xsight Systems, an American developer and provider of runway sensor solutions, has installed the first operational automated foreign object damage (FOD) detection system in the United States at Boston Logan International Airport. The system can also be used to detect wildlife on runways.
  • Boston Logan International Airport addresses potential FOD problems head on as it becomes the first U.S. airport to adopt the automated FOD detection system.

     

  • Bird strikes are a serious threat to aviation, on the ground as well as in the air, since flying animals can damage engines and other plane parts.
  • Xsight Systems, a developer and provider of advanced runway sensor solutions, announces its new SnowWize solution for snow depth measurement on airport runways.
