The threat of bird-aircraft collisions is an increasing concern globally. For over a decade, Accipiter has worked with the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on avian radar solutions that provide situational awareness and decision support, helping reduce the risk of bird strikes. Accipiter Radar Corporation is delighted to have been chosen by the United States Airforce (USAF) in the first competitive tender for the deployment of avian radar to reduce bird strike risk at Wake Island Airfield in the Western Pacific Ocean.

Accipiter Radar is delighted to announce the recent installation of their Accipiter® NM1-24D Avian Radar at Seattle Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac), which represents the latest iteration of the Company’s innovative, commercially-available technology. The newly acquired avian radar expands Sea-Tac’s existing Accipiter® Avian Radar Network by adding Accipiter’s Total Coverage™ technology. This 3D scanning technology allows Sea-Tac to prioritize where the radar looks anywhere in the hemispherical aerodrome, allowing the radar to search for bird threats including high-altitude off-airport flocks of geese which ultimately resulted in Captain “Sully” Sullenberger’s heroic forced landing on the Hudson in 2009.
