Paper Abstract

Norris Electro Optical Systems (NEOS) has developed a sensor that detects the local presence of aircraft on an airport surface. It operates in the ultraviolet (UV) region where no natural background noise is present, thereby enabling reliable, hands off operation, throughout the environment extremes of high noon to low visibility conditions. These characteristics have been validated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). NEOS is applying these capabilities to enable a low cost, autonomous, electro optically-based, runway incursion prevention system that conforms to the National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB) recommendation for a direct warning to flight crews of the potential for a runway incursion.
