FODD System

Automated and Continuous FOD Detection and Runway Monitoring for Airport Operating Areas

Varec Product Image

The Varec FODD system reduces runway downtime while increasing runway safety, allowing you to increase capacity and efficiency. At the center of the solution is a network of sensors called surface detection units (SDUs), co-located with the runway edge lights. Each SDU utilizes a combination of millimeter-wave radar and camera optics. Together, these SDUs automatically and continuously scan operational areas and use patented image-processing algorithms to monitor runway conditions for FOD, wildlife and equipment status — even during inclement weather conditions.
