FOREIGN OBJECT DEBRIS (FOD) DETECTION SYSTEM
Opening Date :
Opening Time :
Announcement Info :
Foreign object debris (FOD) at airports is defined as any object found on the airfield which has the capacity to injure airport or airline personnel and/or aircraft. The presence of FOD on an Aircraft Operations Area (AOA) poses a significant threat to the safety of air travel. FOD has the potential to damage aircraft during critical phases of flight which can lead to catastrophic loss of life and airframe, and at the very least, increased maintenance and operating costs. FOD damage costs airlines, airports, and airport tenants millions of dollars every year. The cost to repair a FOD damaged engine affected by foreign object debris can easily exceed $1 million. FOD can also cause extensive indirect costs such as flight delays and cancelations resulting in lost revenue and productivity. Current FAA regulations mandate that airport owner/operators inspect runways visually for FOD at a minimum once per day as part of the daily daylight inspection of aircraft operating areas. The implementation of the proposed FOD Detection System on Runway 8R-26L is being partially funded by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) under Grant Agreement No. 3-12-0049-066-2012. The intent of this initial implementation is to achieve a proof of concept regarding the efficiencies of automated FOD detection systems. Based on the findings of this initial implementation, the proposed FOD Detection System may be further expanded to additional runways and/or airport areas at the sole discretion of the County.
