Airport operators must monitor and manage many different aspects to secure aviation safety. Potential safety threats are not only located at the airport, but also within the airport surroundings, which airport operators are obliged to survey and manage to secure safe flight takeoffs and landings.
There are many different approaches to handle the surveying obligations of this environment. The commonality for all current approaches is that they are man-hour intensive, handled in standalone systems, and often demand specialized human resources.
Aviation stakeholders are very much aware that bird strikes are increasing due to increased global passenger traffic, lower noise level from airplanes and climate changes, which all impact wildlife behavior.
