Volacom’s autonomous detection system for birds and aerial vehicles operates 24/7 in all-weather conditions, using thermal imaging and providing up to 360° surveillance area coverage. Detection capabilities cover a wide range of aerial vehicles (aircraft, helicopters, UAVs) and all bird species of 25+ cm wingspan. Detection distances and fields of view vary depending on client needs but may reach 10 000+ m for aircraft and 1000+ m for birds.
The system operates through Volacom’s proprietary detection software providing live view and sound notification upon detection. Once an object is detected, TCS Air tracks it until it leaves the field of view. The modular web-based UI allows the configuration of various settings and keeps a detailed statistical database with video recordings and logs of every detection.
