Abstract
This Phase I SBIR Project is aimed at determination of the technical feasibility and commercial viability of an Avian Infrasound Detection (passive) and Denial (active and non-lethal) System (AVIDDS) using infrasound energy. The primary purpose of the AVIDDS is system is collision avoidance between aircraft and birds during daily flight operations without impacting mission requirements through detection and denial actions. Those actions have the side benefit of preventing other forms of damage caused by birds nesting and perching in unwanted areas. The AVIDDS meets the technological challenge of detecting birds flying into an area where there is the potential for collision with an aircraft using a passive infrasound capability for detection of their presence then using non-lethal active infrasound capability to effectively repel the birds. The infrasound frequency range will not interfere with any current operational aircraft or ground-based sensor systems and it must not be able to target personnel. BENEFIT: The AVIDDS developed for military aircrafts can be used as a non-lethal avian active denial system at commercial aviation facilities, towers, and energy wind-driven windmills that have high concentrations of birds in areas that pose a threat to aircraft from bird-strikes and/or aircraft/facility damage.
