Wind Farm Gap-Filling Radars

Wind farm interference is a a known problem for radar systems, causing poor detection rates while significantly increasing the rate of false alarms. With the increase in the number and size of wind turbines brought about by the growing demand for renewable energy, there has never been a bigger need for a solution that properly mitigates these challenging problems.

SRC has developed the LSTAR®  and BSTAR radars — two low-cost, high-performance, gap-filling air surveillance radars — to specifically address the clutter problems induced by the turbine blades on wind farms. These systems utilize novel radar technologies along with proprietary algorithms to track small, slow moving aircraft and avian life that previously flew undetected over wind turbines.

  • Reliably detects and tracks low, slow-moving, small aircraft flying amidst wind farms
  • Automatically detects and localizes each turbine for unrivaled false alarm control
  • Adaptive algorithms provide optimal detectability by dynamically adjusting to changing turbine speeds
  • Outstanding performance proven during DHS/DoD/DoE/FAA IFT&E test programs
