Bird control for the airports
Airports and airfields attract birds and other animals that cause great risks for the pilots, ATCs or air traffic controllers, passengers and overall operations. To tackle this problem, PDT Agro has developed a controlled, safe and self-working equipment for restricting bird movements in and around airports. This equipment, known as a “Thunder Generator” produces strong and stunning shock waves to keep the birds away from the area and hence minimizing the chances of their collision with the aircraft. The system produces shock waves, as opposed to noise producing gas cannons. In “Thunder Generator” noise is only a by-product of generating the shock wave. It has been developed after years of research and studies conducted by expert scientists and field professionals.
Bird control for the airports is extremely necessary for maintaining safety and also the aesthetics of the place. The system developed by PDT Agro has been implemented by several international and domestic airports in order to mitigate the risks of bird strikes, reducing repair costs and keeping the place look clean and professional.
It is found in a recent survey that every year airports across the country reports approximately 5,000 bird strikes instances. It causes huge losses in terms of repair cost, not to forget the risk they pose to the lives of the passengers and the crew members. Both airborne threat of bird strikes and pest birds in the ground can be avoided with PDT Agro’s “Thunder Generator” and thus saving valuable equipment and aircrafts kept in hangars or terminal buildings.
This system works effectively years after years because, Since gas cannons only generate noise, birds get used to it soon and therefore, it loses its effectively after some time. On the other hand, “Thunder Generator” produces shock waves with air pressure differences and birds can never get used to it, like the noise. Moreover, this technology has no long-term effect on the birds and does not affect them when they leave the air field.
