A Leidos-integrated and Xsight Systems-developed automated runway management system has been deployed at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to detect foreign objects and debris at the airport’s new center runway.
Leidos said Thursday the Port of Seattle selected RunWize to help bolster safety and efficiency in the runway’s daily operations through continuous video monitoring.
The system, which includes FODetect and the bird hazard management technology BirdWize, features hybrid optical-radar remote-sensing technology.
Leidos is the prime contractor on the program and its subsidiary Varec led the integration of RunWize into the refurbished runway.
The company said airports in Boston, Tel Aviv and Bangkok have also deployed FODetect.
