CONTROP Provides Advanced Flight Safety Solutions at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport, for Bird, Wildlife & Drone Early Detection
CONTROP announces two (2) major air safety projects. The company provided unique, advanced flight safety measures at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport for bird, wildlife and drone early detection. In addition, the Dallas City Council has approved the purchase of this system for the Dallas Love Field Airport in Texas, with installation expected to take place in late 2018.
CONTROP’s SPEED-BIRD system is based on the successful SPIDER system, with unique highly sensitive panoramic scanning technology that automatically detects birds during scanning. Along with advanced algorithms that were developed specifically for this application, this system will be integrated as a key component of Pharovision's SENTINEL system. The SENTINEL is an EO/IR-based automatic detection and tracking system. It helps prevent collisions between aircraft and birds or flocks of birds or other wildlife, whether in the sky, on the ground, or near the runway – during take-off, landing, and taxiing. It can also detect people who trespass on airport property, as well as drones that fly into the airport’s airspace. The system automatically determines what an object is, tracks it, and alerts airport personnel.
The system integrates a thermal imaging camera with advanced electro-optics, and a day camera. The combination of the continuous zoom lens of the IR camera, and the full-color live video cameras, allows the SPEED-BIRD system to automatically perform wide area surveillance, providing highly accurate real-time day and night detection and tracking.
