Fact sheet released on effectiveness of bird radars

DeTect : 09 February, 2009  (Technical Article)
DeTect sets the record straight on the effectiveness of bird radar systems in fact sheet designed to address issues raised in wake of US Airways New York crash
DeTect has issued a "Bird Radar" Fact Sheet to clarify and correct recent alleged FAA mis-statements about bird detection radar systems that have appeared in news articles in the aftermath of the US Airways flight 1549 bird-related incident.

"The FAA statements to the media that bird radars are not ready for operational use and will take years more research, simply are not correct," said Gary Andrews, DeTect's General Manager and CEO. "No one from the FAA has ever seen one of our MERLIN systems in operation to my knowledge," he continued. DeTect has over 40 of its MERLIN Avian Radar Systems in operation worldwide which includes systems used for operational birdstrike risk detection, tracking and alerting at commercial airports, military airfields and space launch facilities, with real-time bird activity displays used by airfield managers, bird control staff and air traffic controllers. "The MERLIN technology is proven and can be integrated today into commercial airport operations to better protect aircraft, pilots and the flying public," Mr Andrews stated.
