Key Benefits & Differentiators

EchoTrack Radar–Acoustic Surveillance System provides unique and powerful capabilities for monitoring airborne wildlife that the competition cannot provide.

dove-grey

The EchoTrack system surveys all concurrent bird and bat flight paths, in a landscape 4 km across and a hemisphere 10 times the volume of commercial directional bat sensors.

Benefit

All the animals within the radar's hemisphere are captured, not just the animals that cross the beam.

landscape-grey

The EchoTrack system follows flight paths from ground level habitat to 1900 m above ground.

Benefit

Wildlife behaviour can be attributed to the landscape features.

radar-grey

The EchoTrack system derives accurate mapping of individual flight paths in location and time, with height.

Benefit

Both landscape–level analysis, and options for mitigation at the individual wind turbine are achievable.

locator-grey

The EchoTrack system maps individuals across the horizon.

Benefit

The sources and destinations of individuals are known, as are the regions of high risk flight behaviour.

internet

The EchoTrack system produces constraint maps of focal species with sufficient detail for setback and operational mitigation which other commercially–available systems, acoustic or radar, cannot provide.

Benefit

Species–specific mitigation strategies are provided that meet Endangered Species laws and Best Management Practice guidelines.

data-analytics

The EchoTrack system provides constant, quantified sampling volume and automated data analysis

Benefit

Automation controls for bias and enables BACI (before–after–controlled–impact) assessment.

target-grey

The EchoTrack system is proven to increase the accuracy of observations beyond traditional visual methods of assessment of risk.

Benefit

The EA reporting to regulators is thorough and accurate in identifying risks requiring mitigation.

bat-grey

The EchoTrack system's custom hemispheric ultrafrequency sensors are capable of detecting bats to 100 m.

Benefit

Bats can be detected into wind turbine blade height without having to mount sensors on the towers.

data-analysis-grey

EchoTrack stores all of the raw data.

Benefit

The data can be re–analysed using different parameters in the event that development plans change, and the need for additional field monitoring is eliminated.
