Observational Validation of Avian Radar Systems

At airports, avoiding collisions between birds and aircraft is the focus of both wildlife management and bird strike hazard warning systems. In the past, the tools available to airport personnel were limited to human observation, which documented species and numbers, followed by scientific analysis. With the advent of radar technologies and the availability of relatively inexpensive radar systems, a new tool was introduced to airport safety management systems. Avian radar provides an opportunity to extend observational capabilities to 24/7 time frames and the ability to expand spatial coverage in both distance and altitude.
