1000   Hill Panel                                      Moderator: CNN's Peter Goelz


Focus:  Data on budgets and ranking of funding for airport FOD safety.  What to expect in the FAA

Reauthorization, will surface management safety be a priority, what questions the Hill will have in

drafting a bill (cost, research needs, industry leading technology), potential landscape changes

after the mid-term election

all those involved.  How has liability been reduced by present systems versus the cost of doing

nothing, liability for airports, aviation manufacturers, specific incidents to discuss – Concorde

liability, Boeing suit for paint/bead mistake, aircraft such as Lear 25 that are FOD magnets 



1400   Technology Panel                    Moderator:  Dr Ed Herricks/FAA Center Of Excellence 


Focus:  Technology has advanced since the Concorde and Hudson incidents—what are they and

where are they operational?  Latest advancements in tracking and detection technology,

challenges under assessment, US aviation policy limitations/needs, where does full avian tracking

exist (oil sites), where are domestic FOD resources directed, concerns with domestic airport RFPs

for tracking technology

critical surface safety management technology, upcoming rules or advisory circulars affecting

implemetation.
