Abu Dhabi International Airport is an airport in the midst of large expansion plans with construction of the new Midfield terminal building nearing completion; this new terminal is quite an architectural feat as well as including one of the worlds largest indoor arches spanning 180m across it has been designed to handle 30 million passengers per year.
As part of the airports expansion they were looking for a state of the art wildlife data logging system to roll out as part of their Wildlife Hazard Management place so contacted Scarecrow through our local agents.
Following the purchase of 2x Scarecrow B.I.R.D Tab™ systems at the beginning of the year Scarecrow Director, Lee Pannett, has now completed the training of staff at the airport on the use of the data logging system. Training was predominately provided on a “train the trainer” basis to Jose Leroy Escobar Santos (Roy), Airside Operations Officer who has been tasked with managing the roll out of the software and report generation.
Below is what Roy had to say about the system after it has been in use for a few months
“Abu Dhabi International Airport (ADIA) is fully determined on enhancing our Wildlife Hazard Management and reducing wildlife strikes at the airport. ADIA has adapted the Scarecrow B.I.R.D Tab system as part of our main control strategy, risk measuring tool and performance target monitoring. The Scarecrow B.I.R.D Tab system is helping us deliver our Wildlife Management goals. The system is user friendly. The layout is very intuitive and natural. System learning curve was quick and easy. Technical support is prompt and helpful. A worthwhile investment for a fast growing airport”
