Moog Announces Exclusive Licensing Agreement with QinetiQ for Airport Runway Foreign Object Debris (FOD) Detection Systems

Moog Inc (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) and QinetiQ Ltd have entered into an exclusive licensing agreement for QinetiQ’s Tarsier® airport runway foreign object debris (FOD) detection system.

The exclusive agreement will provide Moog’s established customer base access to the latest FOD detection technologies for airport runways and will provide QinetiQ immediate access to Moog’s global sales channel with strong civil and military customer relationships throughout Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.

The Tarsier® FOD detection system quickly scans the runway using a combination of radar and electrooptical sensors. The combination of sensors provides the ability to detect and pinpoint the location of FOD on the runway day and night and in a wide range of adverse weather conditions.

The system has been successfully deployed in several high-traffic density airports, including London’s Heathrow Airport and Canada’s Vancouver Airport.

Moog NaSS executive general manager John Willey said: "Our mission is to offer customers the best solutions available on the market.

"I’m delighted to have the opportunity to add the QinetiQ Tarsier® FOD detection system to our portfolio of products and managed services."
