  • Aircraft Birdstrike Avoidance Radar

    MERLIN has a documented record in reducing bird strikes, increasing safety and reducing aircraft damage and delay costs at both military and commercial airfields. MERLIN is also the only bird radar system to have been evaluated and certified for real-time, tactical flight safety use by the US government (NASA and the USAF) and is the only bird radar approved for and in use at a commercial airport control tower under national flight safety standards. The MERLIN technology includes a wide range of unique features and benefits not available with any other system:

  • Operational, production-model technology
  • Real-time display of bird activity with the higher available update rates
  • Precise, tactical, automated bird-aircraft strike risk alerts to controllers & pilots
  • Mobile, real-time information displays for airfield bird control units
  • Detects birds from ground level to above aircraft operational altitudes
  • Full 3D airspace coverage & data
  • State-of-the-art solid-state S-band Doppler radar technology
  • Reliable bird detection in up to moderate fog, rain & snow conditions
  • Military-grade bird detection tracking algorithms & clutter suppression
  • Real-time target filtering by size & mass for hazardous bird activity
    • Avian & Bat Radar Systems

      The MERLIN™ Avian Radar System is the very capable, proven and widely used bird radar system available for conducting bird and bat surveys, research, mortality risk analysis, habitat and migratory studies, and for long-term and operational monitoring and mitigation of risks. MERLIN technology capabilities include:

    • Security & Surveillance Radars

      DeTect’s radar processing technology developed specifically for reliable detection and tracking of small, non-cooperative, low radar-cross section, non-linearly moving targets make it one of the more sensitive, low cost radar systems on the market today for a wide range security and surveillance applications.

    • Drone Detection & Defense Systems

      DeTect has developed a unique drone/small UAV detection and defense solution, DroneWatcher, consisting of three technologies that can operate independently or together to provide complete, multi-layer security:
