The Trex FOD Finder™ XF System is a dual-sensor system employing millimeter-wave (MMW) technology designed to detect and identify Foreign Object Debris (FOD) on the runway. From its fixed location adjacent to the designated runway, the Trex FOD Finder™ XF System identifies the location of each detected FOD to within two meters anywhere within the designated monitoring area. The FOD Finder™ XF can function in all-weather environments day or night. Its radar is capable of penetrating fog, rain, snow, haze, and sandstorm conditions. The 24/7 system is designed to be network expandable to cover the entire length of designated high traffic and runway surfaces, providing an updated scan of the area within two minutes.
The primary sensor is a low-powered MMW radar with 100% detection capability in all weather conditions
The secondary sensor is a radar cued visual imaging camera/illuminator for confirmation, identification and documentation of the detected debris
