Aircraft Detection Lighting Systems

by Bob Lewis of DeTect

In response to the Dark Sky initiative to reduce light pollution and customer demand, DeTect developed the HARRIER Aircraft Detection Lighting Systems (ADLS) for automatic obstruction lighting activation for aviation obstructions such as wind farm turbines, high voltage transmission lines and communication towers. The HARRIER ADLS provides reliable, continuous 360 degree radar surveillance of the airspace around wind farms, communications towers, power lines and installations that require aircraft obstruction lighting from the ground level to above aircraft flight altitudes, automatically issuing signals to activate obstruction lighting when aircraft are detected at a defined outer perimeter.
