Anti-Bird Strike Radar?
While reading the professionals over on pprune what struck me is that even though the high res airport active radar may no longer be used I though the bigger airports were supposes to be getting runway local anti bird strike radar. Which should show up drones quite nicely.
Is Gatwick supposed to have active anti-bird strike measures in place? Is it a legal requirement for operation? If not why not.
It seems that a few of the anti-bird strike radar units placed around the runway perimeters would kill two birds with one stone. So to speak. And a guy with a shotgun could deal with both kinds of flying pests.
