Foreign object damage (FOD) is a major safety concern in the aviation industry. FOD can cause engine failure, loss of control, and even crashing. It is estimated that FOD costs the aviation industry billions of dollars each year. The most common type of FOD is bird strikes, which can damage an aircraft\s engine, windshield, and other critical parts. Other types of FOD include debris from runway construction, hail, and even small objects left on the runway by maintenance crews. FOD in aviation can also come from inside the aircraft, such as loose items that become dislodged during turbulence. To reduce the risks posed by FOD, airports have implemented many measures, such as bird deterrents and improved maintenance procedures. Even with these precautions, however, FOD remains a serious threat to aviation safety.
