Metz, Isabel and Ellerbroek, Joost and Mühlhausen, Thorsten and Kügler, Dirk and Hoekstra, Jacco M. (2016) ATC Advisory System for the Prevention of Bird Strikes. The Sixth SESAR Innovation Days, 8.-10.11 Nov. 2016, Delft, Niederlande.

Collisions between birds and aircraft, so called bird strikes, pose a considerable risk for aviation safety. Because risk of bird strike is highest below 3000ft, current mitigation measures mostly focus on keeping birds away from airport grounds. Despite these efforts, the number of bird strike occurrences is still significant. The PhD project presented in this poster evaluates a new approach for mitigating bird strike risk: Tower control is provided with information about the current and predicted bird traffic in the arrival and departure corridor. Based on the derived risk for collision, the controller can decide to reroute or delay traffic. The target of this PhD project is to determine the feasibility of such an approach by assessing the effects on safety and airport capacity when applying this concept.
