• I am convinced that avian radar will become a self-evident part of next generation bird strike mitigation policies at larger civil airports. In part, because it allows us to objectively measure and use risk as a performance indicator, rather than the rare occurrence of incidents.

    Bart Straver, Manager Bird Control at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

  • The Mainport Innovation Fund stimulates start-ups with innovative and sustainable products in aviation. ROBIN Radar has developed a system which detects birds at great distances.

    Peter Hartman, vice-chairman of Air France-KLM

  • Military aircraft fly low, fast and are extra sensitive for bird strikes. ROBIN systems are linked to our existing air defence radars to identify bird intensities up to 150 kilometres. Since we've started using this information, we've reduced the number of bird strikes by over 50%.

    Lt. Gen. Sander Schnitger, Commander Royal Netherlands Air Force

  • With this technology, ROBIN meets the growing need for more accurate and real-time information about movements of (large) birds in the vicinity of the airport.

    Jos Nijhuis, CEO of Schiphol Airport

  • Bird strikes are an increasing safety and economic concern.

    Mr. Y. Wang, Chief Aerodrome Section ICAO

  • If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.

    Richard Dolbeer, Wildlife consultant

  • ESA uses a win–win approach that promotes the added value of space in a fair and unbiased way, and supports the development of sustainable space-based services for the benefit of society. The successful operational outcome has proven that this can play a fascinating role in bringing together user interests and communities.

    Amnon Ginati, head of department at ESA about the ROBIN success story

  • Balancing wild life protection and passenger safety by reducing the bird strike risk needs an open dialogue between all involved. That should be based on facts. Avian radar has the capability to provide unbiased facts and is thus a vital element for the decision making process.

    Captain Rob van Eekeren, executive director World Birdstrike Association.
