Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO055: ADLS System : Passive detection system for light management in wind farms

Hélène Bugat, R&D Director, HENSOLDT


The aim of the studies is to create a device that reduces the visual impact of windfarm lighting during the night. The goal is to switch on the windfarm lights at the right time, neither too early nor too late, and thus help reduce light pollution. The flash effect (switching ON and OFF repetitively) must be avoided. With such a solution, we will improve the public acceptance and maintain a high level of security. The communication data management with transponders to perform aircraft detection is a good solution. As radar coverage in Europe is very important and as each aircraft must be equipped with a transponder, the use of a passive radar can reduce costs and provide a high level of reliability. The use of passive receivers avoids polluting communications between aircraft. We do not interact with the aircraft, but the idea is to use the signals emitted to analyse their position. The ability to detect transponder signals from approaching aircraft is wide-ranging, whether in civil or military modes. This ensures the detection of all aircraft approaching the area. Our studies are based on a secure system for analysing aircraft around the security perimeter, with different stages of verification. Because we can detect the aircraft far from the windfarm, this solution offers the possibility to create a tracker system. In addition, 1 single box provides complete coverage of the windfarm, offering quality monitoring over a wide area, which also guarantees that the same information is given. Additional studies are in progress to develop Multilateration.
