Why A-FOD Solution is needed:
FOD (Foreign Object Debris) is a very big problem in aviation industry. Automatic FOD Detection Systems are very new for the market all over the world.
To see the importance of FOD please check the FAA link: https://www.faa.gov/airports/airport_safety/fod/
A-FOD is used for runways, heliports and aprons. A-FOD is state of the art technology which uses Electro Optical Sensors and Artificial Intelligence. Besides FOD detection, extra functions are Pavement Management, Snow-Ice Management and Wildlife Management.
A-FOD saves costs of field operation and prevents any interruption on runway/apron operation.
