||iFerret™ – FOD (Foreign Object & Debris) Detection System
Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS)
In February 2008, CAAS awarded a contract to Stratech to deploy iFerret™ along both runways at Singapore ’s Changi Airport. This deal marked the first commercial application of iFerret™. The system was commissioned in June 2009.
This state-of-the-art Airfield/Runway Surveillance and FOD Detection System utilises electro-optic sensors to automatically detect, locate, classify and record FOD in the airport/airbase environment. iFerret™ intelligently adapts to the dynamic airfield environmental challenges, such as lighting condition, shadows, rain and shine, and eventually snow. Operating 24x7, it gives the operator a full visual assessment of the airfield in real-time, and enables zoom-in verification to make better-informed decisions from the Air Traffic Control and Ground Operations Control Centre.
