Airfield and Airport Runway Safety Solutions

By Elli Karampela

Airports require sophisticated airfield and runway safety systems to continuously inspect for locating potentially hazardous objects on airfields and runways.

Next-generation radar-based systems are gaining traction amid rising threats such as drones near airports, bird aircraft strike hazards and foreign object debris (FOD) on runways.

Need for modern runway and airfield safety solutions at airports

The majority of airports currently rely on human supervision and vehicle patrols for regular perimeter fence checks and inspections of airfields and runways, resulting in inefficient safety operations due to limitations such as poor visibility and inconsistent human performance.

Advanced radar-based surveillance and automated monitoring solutions, as well as remotely piloted aircraft systems, enable airport authorities to accurately inspect airfield and runway equipment and systems while achieving cost and time savings when compared to conventional airport safety procedures.
