[Table] On-site collection by type of FOD (2013 ~ 2015, Incheon International Airport)
  • July 2000, Concorde aircraft crash at Charles de Gaulle Airport
  • February 2007, four aircrafts tire damage accidents landing at Narita Airport in Japan
  • June 2016, KAL air passenger tire damage accident
Aviation safety accidents and engine damage caused by FOD
  • Airport FOD are obstacles to the flight safety sector, and FOD are directly or indirectly economic lostdue to aircraft maintenance and delays.
  • According to a study by Wright Patterson AFB Aerospace Research Institute in the United States, more than $ 200 million a year has been lost from airport FOD around the world.
  • We need to develop of an automatic detection system for airport operation area to prevent the airport safety accident and to increase the efficiency of airport operations.
