Runway Lights

An airport may have up to 30,000 runway lights – each secured by up to 12 bolts. These amount to a total of 360,000 bolts, which must be checked several times a year, with the results documented accurately. The cost for having trained personnel doing this works out to millions of Euros or dollars every year. Moreover, there’s the cost for runway shutdown during inspection, and the cost of documentation and reporting. And let’s not forget that airports are already short on runway usage time and every shutdown is a significant cost. This cost can be drastically reduced when you have automated remote inspection, monitoring and reporting.
