The FAA is more than two years behind schedule for commissioning equipment designed to improve runway surveillance to reduce incursions. Congress wants to know why and what can be done about it and asked the DOT Inspector General to launch an audit into the matter.

ASDE-X systems are intended for medium-use airports, such as Orlando International and Milwaukee General Mitchell.
