Xsight detection technology provides enhanced airport runway safety

The Port of Seattle said it has launched the runway management solution RunWize™, which includes FODetect®, automated Foreign Object Debris (FOD) detection and BirdWize™, ground level bird hazard management, developed by Xsight Systems and integrated by prime contractor Leidos (NYSE: LDOS).

RunWize has been deployed on the newly rebuilt center runway and ready for the runway opening, after successfully passing site acceptance testing.

RunWize improves the daily operation of airport runways by increasing safety and efficiency. Its detection capabilities are derived from a unique hybrid optical-radar remote-sensing technology and strategic positioning of its sensors alongside the runway, collocated with the runway edge lights.

Leidos is a science and technology solutions leader working to address some of the world´s toughest challenges in national security, health and engineering.

Xsight Systems is the provider of advanced runway sensor solutions chosen by leading airports worldwide.
