  • Publication number: 20180335504
    Abstract: A real-time radar surveillance system comprises at least one land-based non-coherent radar sensor apparatus adapted for detecting maneuvering targets and targets of small or low radar cross-section. The radar sensor apparatus includes a marine radar device, a digitizer connected to the marine radar device for receiving therefrom samples of radar video echo signals, and computed programmed to implement a software-configurable radar processor generating target data including detection data and track data, the computer being connectable to a computer network including a database. The processor is figured to transmit at least a portion of the target data over the network to the database, the database being accessible via the network by at least one user application that receives target data from the database, the user application providing a user interface for at least one user of the system.

  • Patent number: 9291707
    Abstract: A 3D avian radar sampling system comprises a 3D volume scanning radar system and an avian track interpreter. Scanning methods employed ensure that volume revisit times are suitably short and track data produce 3D target trajectories. The avian interpreter uses the track data from the volume scanning radar to create detailed avian activity reports that convey bird abundance and behavior within a 3D cylindrical volume on intervals including hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. Hourly activity reports (updated typically every 15 minutes) provide enhanced situational awareness of developing hazards and are actionable, allowing operators to dispatch wildlife control personnel to respond to threats.

  • Patent number: 8988230
    Abstract: A bird deterrent system includes (i) measurement of bird habituation to activation of deterrent devices and (ii) reduction of habituation through increased selectivity in activating deterrents only for birds posing a threat to or threatened by a protected area, and in particular, those within threat altitudes. The bird deterrent system further provides (iii) analytical data in support of safety management systems, risk management, etc., and (iv) integrated, wide-area radar coverage with multiple virtual intrusion zones providing multiple lines of defense around and over very large protected areas.
