1 George Gavel Marc Greencorn Alex Herbin Allan Notman Project Proposal Team: Bird Strike

2 PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION  Wildlife at airports is a problem  Year 2007, 1324 reported bird strikes  50% occur on takeoff or landing  Birds too close to or on the runway

3

4 BACKGROUND INFORMATION  First recorded strike: Orville Wright Sept. 7, 1908  First fatality: Cal Rodgers 1912, bird lodged in control mechanism  : 42 fatal accidents, 230 deaths, loss of 80 aircraft  Larger and faster planes at greater risk  Greater risk in Jul-Sept (50%)  Most common: gulls & birds of prey

5 CONTACTS

6 DO WE NEED A SOLUTION? ● Worldwide population sees birds in airport vicinities as a major problem and are very eager to adopt a solution ● Over 200 worldwide deaths since 1988 ● Cost of bird strikes to airlines is around US$1.2 billion annually worldwide ● Bird strikes date as far back as 1908 ● Bird strikes are increasing with time

7 DO WE NEED A SOLUTION? ● New York lawmakers want issue addressed ● Safety expert John Goglia hopes to hold a “bird summit” in New York ● NTSB will likely propose federal changes to reduce collisions with wildlife ● Experts hope new technology will help detect birds and keep them away from planes

8 DO WE NEED A SOLUTION?

9 Criteria  Adaptable to power source along current airport runways  Follow runway guidelines set by Transport Canada  Avoid disturbance to area surrounding airports  Adaptable to differing bird species found at various airports

10 STAGES Define our engineering problem Define our engineering problem Research through networking and online resources Research through networking and online resources Determine why the problem exists Determine why the problem exists Determine the conditions of the problem Determine the conditions of the problem Research all ideas being used in other industries and locations Research all ideas being used in other industries and locations Use these ideas to create a solution Use these ideas to create a solution Sketch solution and possibly build prototype Sketch solution and possibly build prototype

11 TIMELINE  Progress Report 1: have all research complete and have several ideas for what to do  Progress Report 2: Finalized solution, know what we are going to do, including sketches, CAD drawings and build plans  Final Report: Have design tested and refined with all observations recorded
