Bird Strike Prevention Applications
Accipiter Radar information networks help wildlife control, air operations and ATC personnel keep you safe by providing continuous, real-time and historical bird activity information, day and night. Accipiter's Total Coverage™ Technology provides complete cylindrical coverage of the entire aerosphere with user programmable scan patterns. Our M3™ multi-radar, multi-mission, multi-user system capabilities support better management of local habitat to make it unattractive to birds as well as offering the data for the dispersal of approaching birds before they reach hazardous airspace, and providing localized warnings to pilots when bird aircraft strike hazards (BASH) persist.
Conservation efforts over the past 40 years combined with major increases in global air traffic have forced birds and planes to share the same skies more and more frequently. Thousands of bird strikes are reported each year causing over a billion dollars in damage, travel delays, and more importantly, injuries and loss of life.
Accipiter provides radar-based information networks that cater to the specific needs of BASH management at civil airports, military airfields and professionals carrying out wildlife hazard assessments designed to characterize and quantify bird hazards.
