Aerosweep, Airfield FOD Sweeper The FOD*BOSS
Aerosweep’s FOD*BOSS is widely acclaimed as the ultimate foreign object debris (FOD) sweeper. Airports, airlines and military bases now recognize that the FOD*BOSS is more than capable of handling their airfield sweeping program. It has a top speed of 40km/h (25mph), a sweep width of 8ft to 24ft, and a collection rate that must be seen to be believed.
The FOD*BOSS sweeper has become the most reliable and cost effective FOD removal tool in the aviation industry. At any time of day or night, in wet or dry conditions, the FOD*BOSS is fast becoming the primary sweeping device for all aviation applications across the globe.
Versatile FOD sweeper
Whether you run a routine daily, weekly, or monthly FOD sweep or require a reliable FOD sweeper at a moment’s notice, the FOD*BOSS is up to the challenge. Capable of being operated by any member of the team behind any vehicle with a tow point using a complete range of tow adaptors, the FOD*BOSS is the most versatile sweeper available.
Battery or electric-powered FOD sweeper
The FOD*BOSS’ green credentials cannot be disputed. Its non-mechanical operation and ability to be towed by either battery or electric-powered vehicles means it is one of a kind in the airfield sweeping industry.
Any small vehicle such as a golf cart or electric buggy can operate a single (8ft), duplex system (16ft), or triplex configuration (22ft) at speeds of up to 40km/h (25mph).
FOD removal for aircraft engines and movement areas
FedEx, Delta and United Airlines are amongst some of the world’s largest carriers who have all integrated the FOD*BOSS into their FOD programs with outstanding results.
The cost of damage to aircraft engines is significant enough, but add to that the damage caused by FOD to aircraft tires, as well as the cost of downtime caused when aircraft are out of commission, and it’s little wonder major airlines are now placing such high importance on the quick and efficient removal of FOD from aircraft movement areas.
Protecting military aircraft from FOD
Repair or replacement of military aircraft components damaged by even a single FOD strike can cost up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Military bases worldwide have therefore been operating the FOD*BOSS sweeper for over a decade.
What started out in Australia under the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has now spread across the globe to help protect the most valuable and high-tech aircraft from damaging and dangerous FOD-related incidents. F22 Raptors, RAF Tornados, F14s and many more vulnerable fighter jets are highly susceptible to FOD damage.
Testimonials about the FOD*BOSS
August 2008, US Military VAW-121 AMO: “I used the FOD*BOSS when I was in the F-14 community and it saved millions of dollars in FODed engines. Once we received the FOD*BOSS, we did not have another FODed engine until we went to the ship.”
September 2006, senior manager for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, LMM International Airport: “Thus far we have been extremely pleased with the results we have had with the FOD*BOSS. We use it twice daily and are continually amazed at the amount of FOD we trap in the unit. The employees actually look forward to doing the sweeping.”
