First satellite-based wildlife monitoring tool for airports
29 August 2016
Wildlife habitats close to airports pose a serious risk to safety at takeoff and landing. Thanks to ESA, a new service lets airports use satellites to identify and manage these areas.
Developed by Ascend XYZ in Denmark with ESA's help, the service uses free images and data from Earth observation satellites combined with smart software.
Several airports in Denmark have tested the Ascend software and found it far easier to use than existing complicated standalone systems.
