Remove FOD & Increase Safety with the FOD*BOSS

Any material that should not be found on an airport taxiway, ramp, runway or airfield is classified as Foreign Object Debris (FOD) and must be removed to increase safety and reduce aircraft damage. Metallic and non-metallic FOD such as stones, gravel, nails, luggage hardware, sand, nuts and bolts, pavement fragments, pose a significant safety hazard if ignored or left undetected. FOD can be ingested into jet engines via vortex suction, puncture aircraft tires, damage propellers, and can cause deadly aircraft accidents. It has been reported that FOD incidents cause billions of dollars in damages each year. For these reasons, Airports, Military Air Force Bases, and Airlines devote a considerable amount of time and energy to the task of removing the threat of FOD from tarmac areas where aircraft are active.

To get rid of FOD, Airports, Air Forces, and Airlines use a variety of options including vacuums trucks, magnetic bars, and rotary brooms.

Our customers's are the true measure of the FOD*BOSS's success read some of them here

I have used the FOD*BOSS product when I was in the F-14 community and it saved millions of dollars in fodded engines.
Once we received the FOD*BOSS, we did not have another fodded engine until we went to the ship. So with that, I say thank you!

Our first FOD*BOSS unit in Atlanta was approximately 2 ½ years old and used daily. It’s estimated that the unit acquired between 8,000-8,500 miles of usage picking up an estimated 32,000 lbs. of debris (Potential FOD). Calculations were based on 800 + days of usage, 10 miles per day and 40 lbs. per day of debris collected. Today, we still believe in the FOD*BOSS and continue to use daily.
