Abstract
Runway incursions have been declared the nation's foremost aviation safety issue by the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration in testimony before congressional aviation committees. Technology solutions to date have been disappointing. After 12 years of development, the frequency of runway incursions shows no sign of abating, even as the cost for such systems continues to rise beyond $DLR9 million per airport. Application of ultraviolet technology offers incremental, low-cost, near- term improvements in runway incursion prevention and other enhancements to aviation safety, as well as increases in airport throughput capability, i.e., a reduction in delays.
