Accipiter to deploy BASH Radar System at Wake Island Airfield
The threat of bird-aircraft collisions is an increasing concern globally. For over a decade, Accipiter has worked with the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on avian radar solutions that provide situational awareness and decision support, helping reduce the risk of bird strikes.
Accipiter Radar Corporation is delighted to have been chosen by the United States Airforce (USAF) in the first competitive tender for the deployment of avian radar to reduce bird strike risk at Wake Island Airfield in the Western Pacific Ocean.
This is a unique and challenging deployment, as the location is very remote, 2,298 miles west of Honolulu and 1,991 miles southeast of Tokyo. We look forward to working with the USAF at Wake Island.
