Tarsier press release regarding Heathrow

QinetiQ issued a press release today that was written by Neil Pritchard, the London Heathrow Airside Operations Manager. It’s not a detailed account by any means, and unfortunately it’s not very forthcoming with data regarding actual Tarsier FOD finds, which is a pity. It does state:

For any airport operator, the area of highest risk is the runway

As we’re aware from comments left on a previous article, this is not a belief shared by everyone in the FOD detection industry. It’s also important to point out that QinetiQ’s Tarsier system does not cover taxiways or aprons, it’s runways only.

The release is available as a PDF document and can be downloaded here.
