Air Traffic Management
In 2015, Moog entered into an exclusive agreement with QinetiQ Ltd. to license their Tarsier T1100 Runway Debris Monitoring System. QinetiQ is a former UK government agency called Defense Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA). Tarsier was developed based on research QinetiQ was conducting for the UK Ministry of Defense and was designed to military specifications. The Tarsier system was the world’s first automated Foreign Object Debris (FOD) detection and warning system when it became operational at Vancouver Canada’s airport in 2006. Tarsier now has more than 100,000 hours of operation at Vancouver, Heathrow, Doha and Boscombe Down RAF airbase.
