Keeping aviation safe
The surroundings of most runways are characterized by an enormous biodiversity. Vast fields with human presence close to zero make an ideal habitat for birds to breed and forage. In the United States alone there are more than 20 collisions between birds and civilian aircraft each day, compromising the safety of passengers and resulting in substantial damage to equipment and costly down time.
Effective bird control is essential and airports spend millions each year to keep birds at a safe distance from aircraft. At Bird Control Group we offer cost effective and animal-friendly solutions for protecting critical hotspots and keeping aviation safe.
“We are delighted to be leading the way in the UK with this enhanced technology as we are constantly striving to enhance our methods of bird strike prevention. The team here at Southampton Airport have had great success in implementing the Aerolaser and are very impressed with the results.”
“If the 60-day trial proves successful, the technology will help to keep birds at a safe distance from aircraft and will become an important conservation measure at Adelaide airport. Laser beams do not endanger birds, quite the contrary. This is a sustainable and animal friendly method for preventing bird strikes.”
Advanced laser technology
The principle of repelling birds with a laser beam is inspired by nature. Birds perceive the approaching laser beam as a physical object. It appeals to the survival instinct, causing the birds to fly away. It’s safe, silent and birds do not get used to the laser beam.
We 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 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.
When our laser technology is applied with repetition, birds will consider the area as unsafe, causing them to avoid the place. Unlike conventional methods to repel birds, habituation does not occur. Our automated laser systems claim a territory 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The rapid development of mobile communication in the recent years offers a huge potential for more effective and efficient airside management.
Bird Control Group seized the opportunity to introduce a new software application and bring real time mobile communication power to the airside area.
