Bird Strike Prevention Products
Until recently, bird strike data and infrequent visual observations of birds constituted the primary means of understanding bird activity and hazards at airports available for use in wildlife hazard assessments and management plans. With Accipiter’s® Avian Radar information networks, birds are now tracked continuously with high precision, both day and night. Location and dynamics information is updated every couple of seconds, providing an unprecedented view and understanding of bird activity surrounding the airport. The ability to provide real-time warnings and to extract trends and patterns with ease equips safety professionals with a powerful force-multiplier, enabling them to effectively manage bird strike risk.
The Accipiter® Avian Radar product family includes a number of mature, standard radar systems engineered and configured to meet typical requirements associated with civil airports, military airfields, and wildlife hazard assessments. Accipiter's Total Coverage™ Technology provides complete cylindrical coverage of the entire aerosphere with a beam that scans 0-360° in azimuth and 0-90° in elevation with user programmable scan patterns. Each system includes our patented M3™ multi-radar, multi-mission, multi-user technology featuring an open sensor and network architecture for flexibility and scalability, protecting your investment for future growth and changing requirements.
Accipiter's bird strike prevention radar information network solutions take into account the important differences between bird aircraft strike hazard (BASH) management at civil airports, military airfields and in wildlife hazard assessments that characterize and quantify bird hazards. Standard configurations include carefully-selected platform(s), transceiver(s), antenna(s), and information system features to meet particular mission and user requirements. No other avian radar has successfully undergone the extensive, multi-year, independent validation and certification that Accipiter® Radars have been subject to by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), with results published in public reports. Accipiter® Radar information networks are proven in the field and can be trusted to work under the densest migration and flocking conditions.
