The FOD Barrier™ can significantly decrease the amount of foreign objects that enter the runway. The blocking mechanism is placed on your runway shoulders creating a barrier between the paved track and the unpaved areas of the runway. Israeli Air Force statistics shows a reduction of 80% in FOD cases in Nevatim IAF base. As a result, the safety level and the operational availability of aircrafts increased.
F.O.D is a common problem in the aviation industry, yet all of the effort is invested in detection and removal technologies - we focus on FOD prevention! Our product placed on the runway shoulders preventing jet-blast, gusts of wind and drainage from placing hazards on the runway. The FOD Barrier is based on technology developed in-house and has globally registered patents
Results Shows 80% decrease in damages and 23% increase in aircraft availability. The FOD Barrier™ went through a diligent process of vetting the product. After learning the design and materials, as well as testing our prototype, we developed a product that is effective and seamless with the base's routine operation.
