Ruselectronics Develops an Anti Bird Strike System

The Vector Research Institute of the Ruselectronics holding has developed the Orni ornithological flight safety system for airports, which can track up to a hundred birds simultaneously at a distance of up to 21 km. The equipment has successfully passed test operation at the Pulkovo airport in St. Petersburg, the press service of the Rostec Group reported.

According to the International Civil Aviation Organization, more than 5,000 bird strikes occur each year worldwide. In almost half of the cases, birds get into the engine, after which the plane has to return to the airport of departure.

Orni includes a subsystem to detect and tracking of birds by radar, equipped with one to four passive coherent locators, as well as a subsystem for interfacing with bioacoustic emitters and other devices that scare away birds that find themselves in a dangerous flight zone. The devices do not interfere with and do not affect the operation of aircraft and airport radio equipment.

The complex received software that records and archives all bird flights, as well as controls the operation of subsystems and exchanges information with other airport services. All Orni work is carried out automatically.
