Radar-Activated Deterrents

Environmental Protection

Radar-Activated Solar-Powered High-Power Acoustic Deterrent

SKU: A-HSPS

The Accipiter® BirdAvert A-HSPS deterrent is a smart, radar-activated deterrent device designed to deter birds from approaching tailings ponds and other hazards that could possibly cause them harm.  These long-range devices project focused sound in the form of distress calls and predator calls that are intended to cause birds to alter their course to avoid approaching and coming in contact with hazards.  Using several of these spaced around the perimeter of a tailings pond will create a first line of protection for approaching waterfowl.  The Accipiter® A-HSPS is smart.  It communicates with the Accipiter® Deterrent Activation Processor (DAP) letting the DAP know its state as well as receiving trigger signals on when to activate, so that birds don’t habituate.  It can also be fired in response to a user-trigger, or set into a random firing sequence.  Communication is over mesh networks so that line-of-sight issues at large mining operations can be mitigated.  By operating on solar polar, fuel servicing is avoided to save operational costs. The A-HSPS is one of a family of radar-activated deterrent devices that plug and play into the patented Accipiter® Radar-Activated Deterrent System (RADS).

Flexibility and Expandability

The Accipiter® A-HSPS Radar-Activated Deterrent is built on Accipiter’s patented Radar Intelligence Network™ (RIN) platform technology which allows it to grow to meet your changing needs, flexibly and affordably. Additional deterrents of all varieties can be easily added to your RADS as your operations grow, and so can additional radar sensors to provide detection of approaching birds/bats and activation triggers.  Furthermore, the RADS can be integrated with Accipiter’s family of bird situational awareness systems which incorporate our M Target Information System (TIS) so that the same radars that are activating deterrents can also be used to monitor and report bird activity, assess and quantify bird/pond interactions, and measure system effectiveness to mitigate against habituation.

Radar-Activated Propane Cannon

SKU: A-LC1

The Accipiter® A-LCS1 deterrent is a smart, radar-activated deterrent device designed to deter birds from approaching tailings ponds and other hazards that could possibly cause them harm.  These short-range propane cannon devices project focused sound intended to cause birds to alter their course to avoid approaching and coming in contact with hazards.  Using several of these spaced around the perimeter of a tailings pond will create a line of protection for approaching waterfowl.  The Accipiter® A-LC1 is smart.  It communicates with the Accipiter® Deterrent Activation Processor (DAP) letting the DAP know its state as well as receiving trigger signals on when to activate, so that birds don’t habituate.  It can also be fired in response to a user-trigger, or set into a random firing sequence.  Communication is over mesh networks so that line-of-sight issues at large mining operations can be mitigated.  By operating on solar polar, fuel servicing is avoided to save operational costs.

Radar-Activated Multi-Sensory Float Deterrent System

SKU: A-MSFD

The Accipiter® BirdAvert A-MSFD deterrent is a smart, radar-activated deterrent device designed to deter birds from landing on tailings ponds and other process-affected water that could possibly cause them harm.  A stable, solar-powered float platform contains a number of integrated deterrent devices including an over-sized falcon effigy, strobe lights, and acoustic devices. The platforms are deployed and spaced across the surface area of an affected pond to provide protection over the entire surface.  Using several of these on the surface of a tailings pond and triggering subsets proximate to approaching waterfowl provide protection for them.  The Accipiter® A-MSFD is smart.  It communicates with the Accipiter® Deterrent Activation Processor (DAP) letting the DAP know its state as well as receiving trigger signals on when to activate, so that birds don’t habituate.  Its deterrents can also be fired in response to a user-trigger, or set into a random firing sequence.  Communication is over mesh networks so that line-of-sight issues at large mining operations can be mitigated.  By operating on solar polar, fuel servicing is avoided to save operational costs.

Accipiter’s Radar Intelligence Network™ Platform Technology

Accipiter offers several carefully engineered systems to address your particular Environmental Protection problems, and they are all built on our patented and game-changing Radar Intelligence Network™ (RIN) platform technology. The RIN architecture ensures your system can easily adapt and grow with your changing threats and needs.

Our novel approach to wide-area, real-time detection, tracking, post processing, and display coupled with on-the-fly and interactive analytics applied to historical target data sets us apart from any other radar systems provider, by giving you unprecedented situational understanding and decision support. Our RIN allows any number of sensors to seamlessly connect over any TCP/IP network to our patented M Target Information System which forms the heart of all our delivered systems.

The Accipiter Device Activation Processor (DAP) implements any deterrent strategy using target behavior and location combined with site-specific deterrent activation logic. The logic is easily reprogrammed in response to changing conditions or habituation. High powered acoustic devices and propane cannons are among the available deterrent devices. For coverage of large tailings ponds, we provide floating platforms equipped with acoustic and visual deterrents including an oversized, animated falcon effigy. Customer-owned or specified deterrents can also be incorporated. Our advanced 3D tracking ensures that deterrent activation is limited to birds tracked on a path towards contact with wind turbines or tailings ponds, preventing unnecessary activations and reducing the rate of habituation to deterrents.

MTarget Information System (TIS)

Accipiter’s multi-sensor, multi-mission, multi-user M Target Information System (TIS) provides the ultimate in multi-sensor target data processing, query and retrieval, enabling rapid and efficient understanding that leads to strategic and tactical decision making.

The TIS not only organizes, stores indefinitely, integrates, manages and distributes the rich sensor target data in earth coordinates; but it also drives an ecosystem of user apps we call Surveillance-to-Intelligence™ (S2I) tools to deliver tactical and strategic information to users. Furthermore, deterrent activation data and system health data are also maintained in the TIS so that system availability and deterrent effectiveness can be monitored, and support staff dispatched to correct system issues, only as needed. Real-time replication technology (RTRT) mirrors the TIS to other locations for partner information sharing, data redundancy and data protection.

Surveillance-to-Intelligence ™ (S2I) Tools

Accipiter provides a suite of easy to use S2I tools, giving users with different roles or missions the situational understanding they need to be more effective at performing their duties. Tactical tools such as the Accipiter® Radar Common Operating Picture (COP) give system operators a real-time map-view of bird/bat tracks, deterrent activations and system status enabling in the field maintenance and response personnel to take necessary and timely action when required. Our tablet-based Mobile Response COP gives responders in vehicles a user-centric display, allowing them to more easily put their own eyes on live targets of interest so they can take action.

Our strategic S2I tools interactively or on-the-fly rapidly mine the TIS’s historical target data to give analysts understanding of target activity patterns; and managers specialized reporting with metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) that allow them to better manage and allocate resources to mitigate risk. The Accipiter® Track Histories Viewer delivers spatial patterns of tracks around your site every hour, while the Accipiter® Target Analyzer Software (TAS) allows the analyst to generate a variety of temporal and spatial target activity distributions including heat maps, all filtered by time, date, size, speed, heading and altitude.
