Runway Threshold inspection

scenario 2, Runway Threshold Inspection


The runway threshold inspection scenario features a drone operator carrying out a remote inspection of the airfield runway threshold. The scenario has been designed to demonstrate the end-to-end process, including defining workflows for pre-approved operations, on-demand initiation, ATC approval and providing situational awareness.


Using drones for on-airfield pavement inspections can provide improved detail and, over time, a clearer picture of the wear and tear profile of the runway surface. We believe that using unmanned air vehicles (UAV) for tasks of this nature could result in a proactive approach to surface repairs, potentially reduce maintenance costs, and prevent unnecessary runway closures.
