OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE LIGHT SWITCH
High infrastructure, such as wind farms or electric lines, are dangerous for aircraft during night time. To remedy that problem, such infrastructure is equipped with powerful obstacle avoidance lights to be visible by air traffic. However, those constantly on lights create light pollution for both nature and people.
To reduce this light pollution and increase public acceptance of wind farms or other high infrastructure, an air traffic detection system allows to switch on those obstacle lights only when an aircraft passes by and keep those lights switched off the rest of the time.
To switch off obstacle lights as often as possible during night time is becoming mandatory in more and more countries. An adequate air traffic detection system is an efficient solution to prevent light pollution and improve air traffic safety.
