FOD Detection at Ben Gurion

THE ISRAEL Airports Authority and X-Sight Systems have signed a major contract to equip Ben-Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv with an Automated Foreign Object Debris (FOD) Detection System – FODetect.  A hybrid optical-radar sensing system, it detects the object, alerts the operator and classifies the type of FOD in most situations including in harsh weather and poor visibility conditions.
Work will be completed over a three-year period, with the main runway due to be finished in 2011, followed by the other two in 2012 and 2013.
