Abstract
XADS proposes the use of 532 nm green laser technology to effectively, efficiently, and safely detect and prevent avian problems on and around airport runways. The effectiveness and use of laser light to deter birds has been proven on numerous occasions and using numerous products. The ability to sweep a runway and the surrounding grounds with a silent, efficient technology will provide airports with a substantial upgrade over loud, acoustic based devices. BENEFIT: the ability to deter avian strikes on aircraft has extreme value for civilian airports and also has some potential to help mitigate bird populations around downtown city areas, landfills, and a variety of other nuisance-prevention applications.
