DeTect has received an order from the US Air Force Europe (USAFE) to supply a Merlin aircraft birdstrike avoidance radar system for Royal Air Force (RAF) base Lakenheath, the company announced on 18 September.

The Merlin system, originally developed for the US Air Force, will provide 24/7 detection, monitoring and birdstrike risk alerts in support of the USAF 48th Fighter Wing.

DeTect's Merlin is a bird-aircraft strike hazard management system. It provides real-time detection, tracking and alerts of hazardous bird activity at commercial airports, military airfields and military training and bombing ranges.

Merlin systems support air traffic controllers, flight safety managers and pilots at US Air Force and navy airfields and ranges and at commercial airports in Europe.
