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, height, 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 5 km. By combining both images, 3D information is retrieved.
This configuration is typically used in civil aviation for wildlife management and bird strike prevention at airports.

ROBIN develops radar systems that are specifically designed to track small objects like birds and bats. ROBIN systems are used by military and civil airports to prevent collisions between birds and planes. Ecologists and Energy companies use ROBIN radar systems to assess and mitigate the environmental impact of wind farms on birds....
