DeTect's Merlin Aircraft Birdstrike Avoidance Radar System

Birdstrikes pose a significant safety hazard to aviation and, according to government studies, cost military and commercial aviation over $2 billion each year due to aircraft loss and damage, out-of-service delays and lost lives.

DeTect’s MERLIN Aircraft Birdstrike Avoidance Radar system is the most advanced, proven and widely used bird radar technology available for bird-aircraft strike hazard (BASH) management and for real-time detection and tracking of hazardous bird activity at commercial airports, military airfields, and military training and bombing ranges. The MERLIN bird radar is proven, production model technology with over 50 bird radar systems currently operating at sites worldwide in aviation safety and environmental applications with documented results in reducing bird strikes, increasing safety and reducing aircraft damage and delay costs. MERLIN is the most widely used bird radar system in the world and is the only production-model bird radar in operational use for real-time, tactical bird-aircraft strike avoidance at commercial airports and military airfields. MERLIN is the only bird radar system to have been evaluated and certified for real-time, tactical flight safety use by the US government and is the only bird radar approved for use in a commercial airport control tower.
