"The first radar was installed at Schiphol's Polder Runway in 2013. After almost three years of comprehensive trials and evaluation of our bird radar's performance, the system was extended to include an additional three 3D Flex radars."

Schiphol Airport uses Robin Radar Systems to provide full bird monitoring coverage of all of its six runways. Full coverage is achieved with four 3D Flex radars.

The first radar was installed at Schiphol's Polder Runway in 2013. After almost three years of comprehensive trials and evaluation of our bird radar's performance, the system was extended to include an additional three 3D Flex radars.

Schiphol Airport uses its radars to obtain actionable information on bird movements within 10km of its airport.

The real-time monitoring of high-risk birds, such as geese, is particularly useful in reducing the risk of bird strikes. But the long-term data gathering and analysis are also proving particularly useful as input for habitat management and generating KPIs related to reducing the risk of bird strikes.
