12 August 2009 Fusion of airborne radar and FLIR sensors for runway incursion detection
Author Affiliations +
Forward looking infrared and Radar (X-band or Ku-band) sensors are potential components in external hazard monitoring systems for general aviation aircraft. We are investigating the capability of these sensors to provide hazard information to the pilot when normal visibility is reduced by meteorological conditions. Fusing detection results from FLIR and Radar sensors can improve hazard detection performance. We have developed a demonstration fusion system for the detection of runway incursions. In this paper, we present our fusion system, along with detection results from data recorded on approach to a landing during clear daylight, overcast daylight, and clear night conditions.
