Re: Anti-Bird Strike Radar?

A good idea, but two potential problems; 1. You're assuming that the birds aren't actively trying to fly into the flight paths of the aircraft unlike the operators of the drones. (Although they probably don't want to ACTUALLY hit a plane, they probably want to make it look as if they do, to cause the disruption). 2. Presumably even with birds, you wouldn't get much of a warning if they suddenly rise up into the flight paths from the ground.
