3D Fixed

If you're looking for a 3D solution, and you're concerned with birds in a particular area, like a runway approach funnel, or a specific wind turbine(s), then 3D Fixed will do the job for you. 3D Fixed tracks birds 360 degrees around the radar in 2D, and in a fixed direction (forwards and backwards) in 3D.

The ROBIN 3D Fixed system consists of a horizontal S-band radar combined with a vertical X-band pulse radar. The horizontal S-band radar identifies the presence and number of birds in time, including their location, direction, speed and route, up to 10 kilometres away, all around, day and night.

The X-band radar covers a fixed vertical area of approximately 6 km. By combining both the horizontal and vertical images, 3D information is retrieved. This configuration is typically used in civil aviation for wildlife management and bird strike prevention at airports.
