Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in Canada is the first commercial airport in the world to have a day and night camera fitted to a Tarsier foreign object debris (FOD) radar detection system.

The high-resolution radar camera will offer visual verification of any harmful objects on the runway in any weather condition, complementing the 24-hour automated runway debris detection system and further enhancing runway safety.

The four radar and camera units can spot plastic, wood, glass, metal and fibreglass anywhere on Vancouver’s north and south parallel runways, which both measure 3km in length.
