Xsight Systems, a developer and provider of advanced runway sensor solutions, is proud to announce today a new, innovative solution - Xsight Runway Black Box™.

The Runway Black Box™ provides continuous recording and monitoring of runways and their adjacent areas. Collocating day and night optical sensors with the runway's edge lights allow for close-up, continuous video recording of runway activity during days, nights and inclement weather conditions. In the event of a runway incident or accident, the system provides runway footage for post-event investigation and analysis. This detailed footage offers visual evidence of possible malfunctions, pilot error, equipment failure and runway conditions that might have led or contributed the event.

The patent pending Runway Black Box™ is innovative monitoring solution offers many strategic advantages in terms of technology, location, installation as well as multiple other applications. The system requires no dedicated infrastructure and installation can be done by any certified electrician. It incorporates day and night optical sensors that are placed as close as possible to the runway to capture clear and accurate footage. In addition to runway recording and monitoring, the system can be implemented for monitoring strategic locations adjacent to the runway such as fences, waterlines and other areas of concern. It is also ideal for runway construction monitoring.

The Runway Black Box™ is the new runway solution that joins Xsight Systems’ long and successful portfolio of runway management solutions and capabilities. Xsight Systems’ technology is the only automatic FOD detection solution installed at Boston Logan and Seattle Tacoma International airports—two major US airports. The company’s technology has been implemented at leading airports around the world: Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Tel-Aviv Ben-Gurion International Airport. Xsight systems recently announced a future installation will take place at Israeli Air Force bases.

"We are very proud to launch a unique surveillance solution that recreates the paradigm in runway close up visibility and liability while introducing, once again, innovative technology to the airfield. Runways are the production line of the airports—they demand streamlined, efficient and safe operations, and Xsight Systems is providing exactly that,” stated President & CEO of Xsight Systems, Alon Nitzan.
