Instead of relying on debris detection, the Airvrix solution prevents most foreign objects from ever reaching the runway. The F-Blocker barrier allows for uninterrupted regular cleaning of the runway and integrates with all other airfield operations and safety procedures.
The F-Blocker sits on runway shoulders and is uniquely designed to keep the paved track free of litter and other foreign objects. An Israeli Air Force assessment prior to installation estimated at least 30% reduction in FOD; results after installation have demonstrated 80% reduction in FOD. The solution is thus proven to increase the safety levels and operational availability of aircraft.
