AVES Airport

Using state-of-the-art AI-based technology, we protect departing and landing aircraft from bird strikes. AVES Airport has been developed to automatically detect and effectively deter birds from sensitive and protected areas. Thanks to the use of precise sensors and AI-based tracking software, it is possible to deter individual birds as well as entire flocks. The deterrence is carried out on a case-by-case basis and is long-lasting, with the high-efficiency acoustic module working in conjunction with intelligent AI-based camera deployment.

AVES Airport

In aviation, bird control is a critical safety aspect. When birds enter aircraft engines or collide with other components during takeoff and landing, it can lead to significant damage and dangerous situations. To reduce the risk of bird strikes, ProTecBird offers an highly effective system for protecting aircraft with AVES Airport.


  • Comprehensive day, twilight, and night monitoring of the entire runway is possible.

  • Reliable detection, identification, and tracking of crossing birds based on AI.

  • Simultaneous detection and tracking of up to 256 birds per camera.

  • No habituation effects of birds due to event-based deterrence.

  • Fully automatic operation through the use of an ADS-B receiver.

  • Automated event documentation and analysis.

  • Control through a web-based application.

  • Optional AI module for species recognition.

The technology

The AVES products were developed to detect birds fully automatically and to scare them away from sensitive and protected areas. Due to the precise sensors and tracking software used, it is possible to scare away individual birds or entire flocks.


This is made possible by the combination of:

  • 360-degree pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera

  • Powerful hardware and software

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and

  • 360-degree high-performance speakers

  • Control is via a user-friendly "Human-Machine Interface (HMI)"
