Stratech’s iFerret to be deployed at a European airport

Stratech press release:

Singapore Exchange Mainboard-listed Stratech Systems Limited (“Stratech”) today announced that it has received a purchase order for the deployment of its iFerret™ intelligent Airfield/Runway Surveillance and Foreign Object and Debris (FOD) Detection System at an airport in Europe.

iFerret™ will be implemented at an airport in Europe to monitor FOD on the taxiway and apron – the world’s first apron deployment for FOD detection. The apron is the area where aircraft are parked, loaded/unloaded, refueled or boarded by passengers, while the taxiway links the runway to different areas of the airport.

Dr. David K.M. Chew, Executive Chairman of Stratech, said: “FOD events do not occur only on runways. According to the UK Civil Aviation Administration, FOD events occur mostly on the apron (55%), followed by taxiway (30%) and runway (15%). Although fatality of FOD incidents is acknowledged on the runway, there is a need to manage occurrences on the apron and taxiway where FOD is much more frequent.”
