"A mobile bird-detection radar system recently installed at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, may eventually help air traffic controllers alert pilots to bird activity in their flight area. The goal is to gather enough information on migration patterns to predict trends and thus reduce damaging bird strikes."

One has to wonder why not get a radar out of an old Mig and just roast the little suckers in flight....


(radars on Migs back in the 70's and 80's were notorious for cooking birds on the runways in front of them...)

you actually mean cooking the birds? The radar being that strong?

This is a big up to the ornithologist community, with myself included. Now we can more accurately track migrating species from Eurasia.

It would have to be a high temperature too "zap" the birds

temperature would have nothing to do with it...its the frequency and strength of emission which relates the "beam's" ability to excite molecules in the target
(or whatever it is broadcast upon)..I worked with some
*very* powerful radar systems that was said if you got in the field you could actually feel it, but everyone stayed clear of test beams because the radiation would make you sick (very).
