Leading global provider of advanced runway safety solutions, Xsight Systems, has partnered with Bayanat Engineering Qatar, a leading airport systems integrator in the Gulf and North Africa, to deliver an intelligent Runway Debris Monitoring System (RDMS) at HIA. Part of the airport's plan to enhance its safety measures and acquire the latest and most advanced runway technologies. RunWize™ will be implemented on the airport's two parallel runways, one of them being one of the longest in the world at 4,850 meters.
Xsight Systems RunWize™ solution provides real-time, automated FOD detection, location, identification and classification. The system has been chosen and defined by HIA as a Tier 1 system to a significant part in the airport's robust eco-system harmonized with other critical interfaces at HIA. The system will ensure full runway coverage and ascription capabilities for guaranteed runway safety and operational efficiency during take-off and landing using sophisticated image and radar processing algorithms based on Artificial Intelligence (AI).
"We are proud to have Xsight's RunWize™ recognized as a critical and integral part of HIA's advanced eco-system to fully integrate and complement other critical systems. This prime function of the RunWize™ within HIA serves as an evidence to the importance the airport attributes to improving safety and efficiency during the take-off and landing operation," said Yaniv Mendelson, VP Sales of Xsight Systems Inc.
