Nanki-Shirahama Airport Initiates Testing for Object and Drone Detection Using Video Analysis Technology

Nanki-Shirahama Airport, in collaboration with Fujifilm, NEC Corporation, and Hitachi, Ltd., has begun a demonstration experiment to detect foreign objects and drones on the runway and surrounding airspace using video analysis technology.

The experiment involves capturing footage of the runway and its surrounding airspace with Fujifilm’s integrated lens long-range camera ‘SX series’ and analyzing the video data with NEC and Hitachi to detect objects and drones. This initiative aims to improve airport security operations by efficiently identifying obstacles, thereby automating and enhancing these processes. Based on the results of the experiment, the team will determine the most effective installation locations for the long-range cameras, evaluate the detectability of foreign objects and drones on the runway and in the nearby airspace, and identify challenges for the practical deployment of surveillance operations.

The trial period is scheduled from January 11, 2024, to March 31, 2025.
