New technology to prevent bird strikes
Bird strikes in aviation are a dangerous daily event. These collisions are not only resulting in massive costs and delays for passengers, airlines, and airports but also can have a fatal outcome. Danish company AscendXYZ has worked with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA) on a solution that integrates bird radars with Earth observation data to tackle the issue. The EU-funded AARN project will develop the advanced prototype solutions developed by ESA into a market-ready service. It will perform radar hazard measurements of bird activity and make the information available to industry stakeholders, including airlines, pilots and airports. The technology will reshape bird strike prevention by facilitating a plethora of data to airlines on bird activity near airports – creating for the first time in the industry a network of connected systems.
