The surroundings of most runways are characterized by an enormous biodiversity. In the vast fields human presence is close to zero, making it an ideal habitat for birds to breed and forage. This globally recognized problem at airports can seriously jeopardize aviation safety.
Effective bird control is essential to ensure aviation safety. Airports spend millions each year to keep birds at a distance from aircraft.
Bird controllers are the goalkeepers at the airside, repelling birds that pose an immediate threat with scaring sounds and pyrotechnics. In order to use these tools effectively, bird controllers need to be in the vicinity of the birds, causing them to drive around the airport constantly to approach these unwelcome guests.
Bird Control Group has developed a valuable addition to the bird controller’s toolbox: the Aerolaser Handheld.
The Aerolaser Handheld is inspired by nature, simulating a natural enemy in order to reclaim the airside territory from passing birds. Birds perceive the approaching laser beam as a physical danger. Moving the beam toward the birds appeals to their survival instinct, causing them to fly away.
Increase the range of bird controllers
Shorten the intervention time
Decrease driving distance and runway crossings
Long range up to 2500 meters
The Aerolaser Handheld enables effective bird repelling across long distances.
Directional bird repelling
The Aerolaser Handheld can be used to repel birds in a controlled direction, away from aircraft.
Animal and environmentally friendly
The Aerolaser handheld is a clean and silent solution, which is completely harmless to birds.
The Aerolaser Handheld is designed for ease of use, while guaranteeing safe operation and maximum performance.
The Aerolaser Handheld maintains it repelling effect over time. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport confirms that birds do not get used to the laser beam.
Safety is our priority
The application of laser equipment in an airport environment poses a potential risk to aviation safety:
Applying lasers at an airport poses a potential risk to safety. The Aerolaser Handheld is equipped with unique safety features, in order to ensure safe operation under all circumstances.
Bird Control Group dedicated years of research to develop the ultimate laser beam. This was accomplished by applying a combination of highly precise optics, filtering and light frequencies. The result is exceptional performance in bird repelling while maintaining safety for both humans and birds.
The patented Horizon Safety System measures when the laser beam is used in an uncontrolled or dangerous manner and deactivates the laser beam when needed. The possibility of endangering pilots, passengers and personnel is thereby eliminated. Upon activation of the Horizon Safety System, the user is notified by active feedback through a LED indicator, subtle vibration and sound.
To make operation over long distances more accurate and safe, the Aerolaser Handheld is fitted with a red dot sight. The sight makes it possible for a bird controller to accurately aim the Aerolaser Handheld at the desired target before activating the laser.
To prevent unauthorized use of the equipment, the Aerolaser Handheld is equipped with a key lock system.
"I wouldn’t change anything on it. I’m glad we’ve got it, because the improved safety on it has made our lives a lot safer, and easier as well."
Daniel Townsend, Southampton International Airport
“The laser has proved to be very effective in chasing away geese in an easy manner.”
Andrew Lindsay, Dundee Airport
"We are very happy with our bird repellent! We would definitely recommend these laser devices as the main solution to bird problems. It definitely works."
Grant Webb, Maersk Oil
“It makes it easier for authorities to permit the use of laser at airports. I strongly recommend the use of the Aerolaser. We are lucky to have it at Frankfurt Airport”
Jürgen J. Ebert, Frankfurt International Airport
