Bird Hazard Management at Airports. You know there's a risk - but how can you measure it accurately? Bird radar gives you the facts.
Unauthorised drones are a safety and security risk at airports. Luckily, we have radars that can help you detect, classify, and track both birds and drones.
To find out more about our networked drone detection radars check out our dedicated drone detection page.
It hasn't escaped us that COVID-19 has seriously affected the aviation sector. We understand that this is a difficult time for many of us, and that we all need to adapt.
That's why we're currently offering trial options and flexible pricing to civil airports. Do get in touch with us if you're interested in these options.
At airports, preventing birds striking aircraft is an on-going challenge.
Our range of bird radars track the exact flight paths of both flocks and individual birds up to 10 kilometres.
They automatically detect and log hundreds of birds simultaneously, including their size, speed, direction and flight path.
With our avian radars, you'll be tracking in real-time, 24/7, all around your airport.
You’ll have all the information you need to mitigate bird strikes, and even intervene, when necessary.
And of course, unlike human observers, our radars don’t need to rest, and they can see in all weather, day or night.

Our bird radar tracks are pushed out to tablets in your bird control vehicles, in real-time.
This creates unprecedented situational awareness, allowing super fast response times.
To make your job even easier, our radars will automatically warn your team if high-risk birds are about to enter a critical zone.
Critical zones are pre-defined areas, customisable in cooperation with the relevant aviation authorities, and easy to modify with new insights.
And you can be sure our radars are going to give you new insights.
Our Mobile Viewer can also display an activity grid, showing where the recent hot spots of bird activity are.
This helps make the most effective use of your team on the ground, making sure they're always there where the action is.
Our data analytics tools allow you to recall, replay, and analyse the recorded data from our radars. This allows you to quantify patterns in behaviour.
Think migration routes, seasonal occurrence, and the impact of specific weather conditions.
The longer you operate our bird radars, the more useful your data will become. You’ll be able to identify key areas on and around your airport, for breeding, feeding, roosting and wintering.
You can create quantified data as input for habitat management discussions with stakeholders, and you can actually measure the effectiveness of mitigation policies.
And something we've noticed. Visualisation of objective data helps create awareness amongst stakeholders. That's why we supply a handy visualisation tool with all of our avian radars.
Our bird radars continuously collect objective data such as near misses, bird densities and runway crossings.
Modern airports use this type of information as key performance indicators (KPIs).
With our custom reporting and viewing, you can choose which KPIs you want to report on, and which timeframes you prefer to use.
This is your chance to move on from simply counting bird strikes, to next-generation KPIs based on real risk.
