DTBird®, teamed up with the American Wind Wildlife Institute, has been selected to be funded by the U.S Department of Energy under the program “Wind Energy-Eagle Impact Minimization Technologies and Field Testing Opportunities”.

DTBird® Detection and Collision Avoidance Modules´ ability to detect and to reduce the overall collision risk to eagles will be improved and evaluated.  

More specifically, researchers will assess how well the DTBird® Detection Module detects eagles, how strongly eagles respond to the sounds emitted by DTBird® Collision Avoidance Module, and calculate how much the DTBird® system reduces the overall risk to eagles.
