US: The Port of Seattle has recently announced launched of the inventive 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, a national security, health and engineering solutions company. RunWize has been deployed on the newly rebuilt center runway and ready for the runway opening, after successfully passing site acceptance testing. The solution improves the daily operation of airport runways by increasing safety and efficiency.
