Abstract
In the proposed effort, Oceanit will employ patented detection hardware and a novel approach to detect and deter avian populations from critical areas. Oceanit’s solution will be autonomous, non-lethal, harmless to personnel, and unable to interfere with currently used sensor systems. Such a solution will effectively maximize collision avoidance between aircraft and birds, allowing daily flight operations to proceed uninterrupted. BENEFIT: The anticipated benefit will be a non-lethal bird deterrence system to reduce damage to aircraft and increase aviation safety at civilian and military airports.
