Runway Black Box (RBB)

What is Runway Black Box?  

Runway Black Box is a basic surveillance product for runway operators. Collocating an optical sensor with the runway's edge lights allows continuous video recording of all runway activity during day, night and inclement weather conditions.

In case of a runway incident, the system provides runway recordings for post event (incident \ accident) investigation and analysis, offering visual evidence of possible malfunctions, pilot error, equipment failure and runway conditions that might have contributed to the occurrence of the event.

The system monitors the runway area including aircraft movements and their external characteristics during approach, touch-down, taxi and during taxi, departure clearance and takeoff.
