Accipiter Radar Technologies Inc. has been awarded a 12 month Radar-as-a-Service (RaaS) contract to supply and deliver their state-of-the-art, patented 3D Total Coverage® avian radar system to Sacramento International Airport (SMF).
SMF served over 12 million passengers last year and is set to break further records of growth this year. It is considered an international gateway to California; with a robust Wildlife Hazard Management Program to help reduce bird strikes.
Accipiter’s Radar Intelligence Network™ (RIN) Platform Technology on which their systems are built are scalable and flexible, while their suite of Surveillance-to-Intelligence™ (S2I) user applications will deliver a wide range of live, historical and analytical capabilities for risk assessment, mitigation and integration with Safety Management Systems. Sacramento International Airport joins Seattle Tacoma International Airport and Vancouver International Airport and is Accipiter’s third West Coast avian radar system deployment.
Accipiter’s approach enables airports such as Sacramento International to determine how avian radar derived actionable intelligence may potentially be incorporated into operations for decision support to the wildlife personnel and safety management teams.
“We are delighted to be working with Sacramento International Airport,” stated Simon Jerome, Accipiter’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “The use of Accipiter’s avian radar system will provide additional bird behavioural intelligence that may aid in their habitat management and mitigation efforts.”
