AI-Powered Runway Sensing Solutions

Seattle-Tacoma Inte'l Airport Improves Runway Safety and Operational Efficiency 24/7

Runways serve a unique and important function within the airport ecosystem. Each day, aircraft face various forms of runway threats from various origins, including foreign object debris (FOD), birds and wildlife and runway contaminants (rainwater, snow, ice, etc.).

As the aviation industry is adjusting to the new normal and airports are becoming increasingly more congested, effective runway sensing solutions that provide full visibility and control of the runway and its surroundings becomes essential.

Xsight Systems developed RunWize™, an advanced multi-sensor system providing 24/7 runway monitoring, to safeguard the take-offs and landings whilst improving the day-to-day operations, by that increasing runway safety, operational efficiency and runway capacity. This solution brings real-time digitalization and 24/7 visualization to the runway as the core of airfield operations.
