Advanced System for Foreign Object Debris, Drone and Bird-Aircraft Strike Avoidance

Project description

Innovation for foreign object debris mitigation

Foreign object debris (FOD), birds and other flying objects like drones represent a rising threat to the aviation industry. To avoid potential risks, the aviation sector adopts new technologies and practices while airports rely on periodic vehicle patrols for runway inspections. However, the problem persists. The EU-funded FODBASA project proposes an innovative solution appositely developed to meet the safety requirements of the sector. The solution consists of an autonomous radar-camera-based system designed for simultaneous detection of FOD, birds and drones, offering cost-effective and reliable real-time identification on runways and within a 10 km radius of the airport. The project will complete the development cycle of the system and prepare it for commercialisation.
