Varec provides a Foreign Object Debris Detection (FODD) system that reduces runway downtime while increasing runway safety, allowing you to increase capacity and efficiency.
Airports across the world are seeing increased demand for air transport, which creates many operational challenges for airport management teams. One of the most critical challenges is finding ways to increase throughput when the runway infrastructure footprint is restricted.
When no more runways can be built, the only option is to increase capacity on the existing infrastructure. However, each day, aircraft face various forms of runway-based safety hazards including birds, wildlife, and a wide range of foreign object debris (FOD). Time must be allocated for safety checks to ensure FOD is not present on runway, apron, and ramp areas.
