xmThe FOD Finder™ XM system is the only certified mobile FOD detection system approved by the FAA. The millimeter wave (MMW) radar system operates at day and night and in all weather conditions. The 78-81 GHz band does not interfere with airport communications, aircraft navigation, or surveillance systems. The XM system is designed to detect and catalog foreign object debris located anywhere within the designated boundaries of the airfield under surveillance. With the optional vacuum system, the FOD Finder™ XM system becomes a single device solution to
aid in the detection, identification, cataloging, retrieval, and documentation of FOD on airfield surfaces. With the optional scissor lift accessory, the FOD radar can be automatically raised during operation and returned to its stowing position inside the bed of the truck to avoid low clearance hazards and following a FOD run.
With an intuitive Touch Screen interface that visually and audibly notifies system operators on detected debris, the FOD Finder™ XM system is easy to operate and requires minimal operator training. The secure data server will catalog, maintain and track geotagged FOD detections to identify airfield problem areas and support Part 139 compliance for database reporting.
