"This technology is a breakthrough in bird deterrent systems for airports since it is completely automatic and laser-based with a diameter of 6 inches that is wide enough to keep birds away from the runway and vicinity," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Gautam Kanal. "The award acknowledges the company's ability to develop an innovative technology that has the potential to become an industry standard in the future."

So far, bio-acoustic bird deterrent systems were the only recourse to bird attacks but the distinguishing feature of Lord Ingenierie's TOM500 is its use of laser technology. This automatic, laser-based system will reduce the loss of time, accelerate workflow, and aid in achieving a higher level of automation. Moreover, since it is completely automatic, the cost of employing labour and patrolling the airfield for bird deterrence is dramatically reduced, in turn lowering operation costs at airports.

"This impressively effective, visual technique is the first and only technology that has been developed for the aviation community by specialised ornithologists and aviation authorities - International Bird Strike Committee (IBSC) and the French Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC), respectively," adds Kanal.

The technology first implemented at the Beauvais City airport (the Paris hub of low cost carrier, Ryanair, in 2006) has since been adopted by airports at Barcelona, China and Schiphol. Scandinavia, Ireland and Bangladesh have expressed their strong interest in the technology.

The innovation has kept in mind the hazards caused by laser usage and the fact that birds become immune to sounds or lights, leaving the mechanism or technology ineffective. Lord Ingenierie has effectively addressed this challenge by using a class 2M laser technology that emits a visible output below 1mW catering to a distance of 1500m. The laser used is as per IEC 60825-1 standards for Laser Safety and adheres to environmental norms, not causing harm to either humans or the ecosystem.

"The significance of this system also lies in its ability to constantly sweep across the runway at speeds of up to 2,000 feet/min and 1 to 1.5 feet above the runway centerline, which ensures up to 94 per cent reduction in bird activity at the runway, as reported by users," notes Kanal. "The TOM500 system delivers a 6-inch diameter expanded and collimated beam over a working distance of 5,000 feet which can cover an area of up to 10,000 feet, depending on the runway profile and airfield topography."

TOM500 is maintenance-free and needs to be serviced only once in 6 months as compared to bio-acoustic systems which require it more frequently. The company is developing its customer support team to handle electronics, optics and software to enable airports to better understand the technology. Service packages are priced economically, adding value to customers adopting the technology at airports.
