Considering avian radar?

MAX helps you here and now and far beyond. This avian radar provides real-time data as and when you need it, logging everything it tracks so you can plan ahead. Use Report Viewer to analyse trends and assist your wildlife hazard management policy.

360° coverage in 3D

We innovated full 360°, 3D systems to give you complete awareness of what’s happening all around you – day or night. MAX tracks thousands of birds simultaneously, displaying data in its intuitive interface.

Elevate your data

Effective Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) call for a wealth of detailed, reliable data. MAX delivers accurate altitude information for each bird track, supporting risk collision analysis.

Sky-high accuracy

MAX's market-leading rotation speed delivers fast track updates for precise tracking and classification. Multiple stacked beams provide advanced clutter filtering for the most accurate readings.

Historical data is as important as real-time insight, so MAX has a long memory. Visualise environmental conditions, bird size, speed, altitude, and more with Report Viewer for risk collision models and effective mitigation.

Balance production with preservation

Wind turbines provide essential renewable energy, but there's a careful balance at play. Wind farms can threaten migrations, wildlife habitats, and sites of ecological importance. This is where our radar comes in.

Gather and analyse data

MAX organises and stores data in Report Viewer. Analyse historical or real-time intelligence, create reports, and develop predictive models to reduce risk.

  • Visualise daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly
  • Customise dashboards
  • Save key observations from Bird Viewer

Wind Turbine Shutdown on Demand (SDOD)

Our SDOD plug-in minimises downtime by working with your wind farm Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. Based on your parameters, MAX gives curtailment recommendations for individual or groups of turbines.

Pair with our Micro-shelter

For a flexible, no-fuss installation, opt for our micro-shelter at even the most challenging sites, like offshore. It accommodates an antenna, radar server rack, transformer, and weather station, protects MAX® from the elements, and secures it in storage and travel.
