Cahit Turhan, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, will provide runway security at airports with the FOD radar and advanced camera systems developed locally and nationally.
Turhan said that R & D studies have been initiated for the development of FOD radar at 2014 in order to increase the flight safety level at the airports.
“FIRST WE WILL DETECT THE SMALLEST OBJECTS ON THE RUNWAY WITH AN RADAR TO BE USED AT ANTALYA AIRPORT”
Within this framework, the national FOD detection system has been developed by supporting the millimeter wave radar with optical system.
IZ WE WILL PROVIDE RUNWAY SECURITY AT AIRPORTS WITH DOMESTIC AND NATIONAL IMPROVED FOD RADAR AND ADVANCED CAMERA SYSTEMS ”
Turhan said that the radar system, which was developed locally and nationally, detected foreign matter residues on the runway at the airports and sent warnings to the operator. First of all, we will instantly detect the smallest objects on the runway with the radar to be used at Antalya Airport. ”
