FAA’s Evaluation of Airport FOD Radar

Edwin E. Herricks

University of Illinois, FAA Center of Excellence in Airport Technology

slide2

The FAA Airport Safety R&D Section (Atlantic City - AAR 411) has implemented a research program to develop a systems-based approach to hazard management for airports and airspace. Up to now, the focus has been on SP-FOD!

Programmatic Overview

sp fod
SP-FOD?

Yup!

Although it could be FOD – SP!

Self Propelled FOD: birds and wildlife

slide4

Focus on SP - FOD

#1 Wildlife management techniques on airports,

USDA leads this effort – see booth and Dr. Dolbeer’s Feather and Furry FOD Interactive Sessions!

slide5

Focus on SP – FOD (cont.)

#2 Development and evaluation of technologies to improve safety

Bird recognition using radar

Joint USAF and FAA DUST program developing a 94 ghz, bird-specific radar

slide9

Focus on SP – FOD (cont.)

#2 Development and evaluation of technologies to improve safety

  • Development of GIS-based support for wildlife management (region and AOA)

Operational at DFW, JFK, SEATAC

slide10

Regional hazard based on (#’s) or damage potential (mass)

slide11

The GIS supports spatial analysis, and allows visualization of data in different ways, including 3d plots of data. These are examples of data displays for # of strikes per grid location.

slide12

There is flexibility working with different coordinate systems and different data representation needs.

#2 Development and evaluation of technologies to improve safety

  • Other safety issues in the airport environment including FOD detection radar!
slide15

Preliminary Evaluation of

Prototype FOD Radar – New Project

  • In FY-04, FAA Headquarters directed R&D to conduct a limited evaluation of a newly developed FOD radar
  • Based on this evaluation, FAA will determine how to proceed in this new area of technology.
slide16

Preliminary Evaluation of

Prototype FOD Radar – UIUC COE

  • Evaluation will be conducted by the FAA Center of Excellence for Airport Technology, the University of Illinois
  • Part of continuing cooperative agreement
  • COE will provide its expertise in airport mapping technologies (GIS) as well as radar field evaluation experience.
slide17

Preliminary Evaluation of

Prototype FOD Radar - Plan

  • Review test data provided by companies
  • Conduct field testing at a U.S. airport in the fall of 2004 (JFK)
  • Analyze field testing data and provide recommendation to FAA Headquarters (2005)
slide18

Preliminary Evaluation of

Prototype FOD Radar - Status

  • Memorandum of Understanding between JFK and FAA (in negotiation)
  • Test Plan and necessary approvals will be developed once MOU has been signed
  • Expected testing Fall 04
slide19

Preliminary Evaluation of

Prototype FOD Radar - Status

The radar that will be tested has been developed by QuinetiQ!

Alan Swain will provide details!
