RunWize™

The Comprehensive Runway Threat Detection Solution

for Increased Safety, Improved Efficiency and Capacity


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 accumulated contaminants (snow, ice, etc.).

As the aviation industry is experiencing remarkable growth and airports are becoming increasingly more congested, an effective runway threat detection solution that provides comprehensive and reliable control of the runway and its surroundings becomes essential.

Xsight Systems developed an advanced sensor-based threat detection solution that improves the day-to-day operation of take-offs and landings whilst increasing runway safety, capacity and efficiency. This solution brings automation to the core of airfield operations.

The Company's flagship technology, RunWize™, is a unique solution collocated with runway edge lights that leverages the fusion of a millimeter-wave radar with electro-optical high definition imaging. Empowered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), it provides superior detection performance of a variety of runway-related threats.

RunWize is composed of FODetect®, which together with its additional enhancements BirdWize™, SnowWize™, ViewWize™, encompass the visibility and control RunWize provides for ground operations on its runways.
