Bird Protection Products
Accipiter offers you proven technology to help minimize or avoid wildlife issues in environmentally-sensitive areas. An Accipiter Bird Protection Radar System can monitor identified regions that are hazardous (e.g., mine tailings, wind turbines) or sensitive (e.g., agricultural research crops) with regard to wildlife intrusions, activating deterrents in a predefined manner to keep the birds away.
- Radar-activated deterrent devices
- Automated Alerting of Critical Events
Not only can sensitive or hazardous areas be delineated and monitored; approaches to these areas can be carefully monitored and defended. The triggering logic for each area or approach can be defined independently of the others. This capability allows the birds to be deterred before they reach the area of concern. Long-range deterrents can be activated at their effective range and additional deterrents can be activated incrementally if the birds continue towards the defended locale.
- Bird Activity Information System
Because the data is stored by the Accipiter M3™ Information System, it can be archived and stored with other sensitive and valuable data. The compact size of the files means 3 – 5 years of data can be stored on a single 1 TB hard drive. This allows year-to-year comparisons as new deterrents are integrated into the protection program.
- Wide-Area Integration
Large areas such as mining operations may require two or more radar systems to effectively cover the area, especially when there are large elevation changes or structures obscuring parts. The Accipiter M3™ (multi-radar, multi-user, multi-mission) information system supports and integrates multiple radar systems and deterrents into a unified operational system. The movements of the birds and the responses of the deterrents for all of the components can be monitored on a single, integrated display. User displays are typically installed in a maintenance office to monitor the status of the deterrents, in the wildlife biologist’s office to monitor the efficacy of the system, and in an emergency response center to inform personnel of situations after hours.
