Rheinmetall’s DEB-RA foreign object detection system gets go-ahead from US Federal Aviation Authority

Rheinmetall’s DEB-RA foreign object detection system is now eligible for procurement under the US Federal Aviation Authority’s Airport Improvement Programme.

Rheinmetall’s state-of-the-art DEB-RA employs millimetre wave radar in combination with high-resolution electro-optical sensors in order to detect dangerous foreign objects on the runway in real time. This reduces the risk posed by these objects – and with a very low error rate.
