The contractor shall provide real time data on bird position, altitude and movement around NAS Kingsville, TX. Services that provide information and real time data on bird and aircraft activity are being utilized by several military and civilian airports to reduce air strikes between birds and aircraft. This information is relayed directly to pilots operating within the airspace, often when they are in the most vulnerable stages of flight during take-offs and landings at low altitudes. Additionally, bird movement in and around the airport is monitored for long-term trends that allow for modeling migratory patterns and bird movement because of weather, feeding patterns and roosting patterns. This data is then used to provide optimal flight planning and scheduling during periods of increased bird density.
