5 5 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Airport Safety R&D March 18, Discussion Today: FOD Detection Technology Update NextGen Airport Technology Research

6 6 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Airport Safety R&D March 18, 2008 Automated FOD Detection Why is the FAA Interested? -Concorde crash preliminary report It has become clearer that this was a unique accident caused by a one-off chance of a piece of metal lying on the runway.

7 7 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Airport Safety R&D March 18, 2008 Automated FOD Detection FOD Detection Concept: Could avian based radar systems be used to detect FOD? Could FOD be automatically detected? Could airport operator be alerted quickly? Can we prevent another Concorde incident?

8 8 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Airport Safety R&D March 18, 2008 Automated FOD Detection FAA Goal Develop performance standards for Automated FOD Detection Systems. Publish Technical Note documenting research. Develop FAA Advisory Circular specifically for FOD Detection Systems. Enable civil airports opportunity to apply for Federal funding to procure systems.

9 9 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Airport Safety R&D March 18, 2008 Automated FOD Detection Available Technologies: QinetiQ – Tarsier Radar – Providence, RI (PVD) – Millimeter Wave Radar – Mounted on Rigid Towers Stratech – iFerret – Chicago OHare (ORD) – High Resolution Camera – Mounted on Rigid Towers X-Sight – FODetect – Boston Logan (BOS) – High Resolution Camera and Millimeter Wave Radar – Mounted on Airport Lighting Fixtures Trex Enterprises – FOD Finder – Chicago Midway (MDW) – Millimeter Wave Radar and Infrared Cameras – Mounted on roof of Airport Vehicle
