OIS AdvancedTechnology has launched the first 3D avian radar system, which provides the complete information about the location of birds over the entire airport space.
The system provides information such as altitude, position and vector of birds over the airport; improving flight safety.
Avian radars are used in locating, tracking and monitoring birds that congregate on the large tracts of unused noise and safety buffer land.
OIS AdvancedTechnology chairman and managing director Sanjay Bhandari said: "We are very proud to present industry’s first 3D bird radar system and even prouder to have developed it using our own technology.
"Traditionally, maritime radars were adapted for this purpose but did not prove to be very effective. So in that sense, this is an industry breakthrough.
"Moreover our 3D Avian Radar System has transportable and fixed version, meeting the needs of most airports."
OIS AdvancedTechnology’s 3D Avian Radar System has detection range of 11km, operating temperature range: -20C to +55C; operation height of 10,000ft; and 360 degrees azimuth coverage with sector blanking option.
It also has the capability to pin point precise bird location, while a sustainable wind speed of 100kmph enables risk and habitat assessment.
The system’s intellectual property is owned by OIS AdvancedTechnology and is being marketed domestically and globally.
OIS-Advanced Technology, based in India, is a systems integrator and manufacturer of advanced technology dual-use products with a focus on homeland security.
