All these accidents were avoidable with the use of ASW equipment (including 2 runway incursion in Copenhagen Airport 2007, 2010)
“A Runway Incursion is any occurrence at an aerodrome involving the incorrect presence of an aircraft, vehicle or person on the protected area of a surface designated for the landing and take-off of aircraft.”

“In the last 10 years 18% of the fatal accidents within the EASA Member States involve runway incursion.” – quote from below link:
USA RUNWAY INCURSIONS (RIs) (by surface event)
|Year||Operational Incident (OI) Attributed to ATC||Other||Pilot Deviation (PD)||Vehicle/Pedestrian Deviation (VPD)||TOTAL INCURSIONS|
|US FAA 2014-2016 – source reports 2013-2014, 2015-2016|
|2016||314 (21.4%)||0 (0.00%)||889 (60.6%)||263 (17.9%)||1,466|

OI = Operational Incident
A surface event attributed to ATC action, or inaction.
PD = Pilot Deviation
Action of a pilot that violates any federal aviation regulation. Example: A pilot crosses a runway without a clearance while en route to an airport gate.
VPD = Vehicle/Pedestrian Deviations
Any entry or movement on the movement area or safety area by a vehicle (including aircraft operated by a non-pilot or an aircraft being towed) or pedestrian that has not been authorized by ATC.
ASW Technology ApS has developed several applications to reduce the number of these accidents/incidents with airport Surface Safety Solutions for:
