“A bird getting sucked into an engine or striking a windscreen could cause a possibly fatal accident – and has in the past forced…emergency landings or crashes. In Singapore, the solution lies in the Airside Safety Rover – a vehicle fitted with a long range acoustic device (LRAD), a loudspeaker…designed to scare birds away. The LRAD plays…different sounds – from gunshots to predator calls – each which are targeted to scare away specific birds. The sounds are also rotated so the birds don’t get too used to one particular sound.”
