Panama City, Florida – USA October 25, 2020
DeTect, Inc. (www.detect-inc.com) announced today that Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority has accepted its HARRIER ADLS for use on Australian wind farms.
DeTect developed its ADLS in 2008 in response to the Dark Sky Initiative to reduce light pollution for projects with aviation obstruction lighting such as wind farms, high voltage transmission lines and communication towers. DeTect’s ADLS delivers reliable, continuous 360 degree radar surveillance of the airspace around sites automatically activating obstruction lighting only when aircraft are detected at a defined outer perimeter. The HARRIER ADLS is compatible with all turbines, communication networks and lighting systems.
“DeTect’s HARRIER ADLS is the most cost-effective system on the market and includes multiple internal fail-safes, long-range detection and tracking, and specialized algorithms to minimize light pollution while ensuring safe aviation operations” said Jesse Lewis, Vice President of DeTect Americas. “We are delighted by this approval and look forward to working on projects in Australia”.
