Beijing Daxing to use Xsight Systems' FOD detection solution

Beijing's soon-to-open Daxing International Airport has selected Xsight Systems’ FOD Detection solution for installation on its East and North runways.

The decision follows the Xsight System being awarded a similar contract for Beijing Capital International Airport's East Runway earlier this year.

“We are proud that Xsight's global reputation as an industry leader is acknowledged by the Chinese aviation market," said Alex Koren, CEO of Xsight Systems. 

"As China is becoming the largest aviation market, with intensive growth in air traffic, grows the need for a runway threat detection solution to boost both safety and capacity of airport runways."


Foreign Object Debris (FOD) and environmental threats on the runway cost the global aviation industry nearly $12 billion each year.

RunWize, Xsight Systems’ runway threat detection solution is specifically designed to prevent FOD incidents, bird strikes and runway excursions, effectively increasing runway safety, capacity and efficiency.

Major airports utlising its technology today include Boston Logan, Seattle-Tacoma, Tel Aviv Ben-Gurion and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi.

Beijing Daxing International Airport will become one of the world's largest airports upon its opening, which is scheduled for the end of September 2019.

According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), China aims to construct 216 new airports by 2035 to meet the growing demands for air travel.
