Monitoring & Mitigating Bird strike Risk with the MERLIN ABAR System

General Manager

  • There is no global consensus on what defines a ‘bird strike’.
  • Counting bird strikes around airports is generally the basis for indicating performance, although the difference between a near-miss and an actual bird strike is pretty much luck.
  • An increase in bird strikes may reflect better reporting rather than a real physical increase.
  • This paper show how airports are moving towards the next-generation of bird hazard Key Performance Indicators by combining cutting-edge avian radars with new data analysis tools to enable objective measurement of real bird strike risk.
