Another field test for Volacopter LZ-73-PRO has been conducted at one of the biggest cherry orchards in Bulgaria. Owners sustain colossal losses of their harvest from birds, which are destroying more than 10 tons cherries every day. Equipped with powerful acoustic emitting device which evokes Acoustic Startle Reflex (ASR) reaction, Volacopter LZ-73 PRO successfully deterred all existing birds in the field with no harassment and habituation.
Volacom is taking all necessary measures to ensure all BCAS equipment is delivered in proper condition to its new destination. That’s why we are using special indicators which can detect mishandling and reduce damage related costs to our products by indicating when the packaging has been exposed to a potentially damaging impact during transit or storage.
Volacom is happy to announce that the first BCAS systems are on their way to Japan. Together with our Japanese partners from NTT Advanced Technology Corp , we are delivering ultimate bird control solutions for airports, industrial applications and other clients in “The Land of the Rising Sun”. We are constantly exploring opportunities for cooperation, so if you want to be part of our growing global network, please do not hesitate to contact us for more details.
At the 2018 annual awards of the Bulgarian Industrial Association (BIA), Volacom has been awarded as the most innovative company for 2018. BIA is a nationally recognized organization of employers and member of BUSINESSEUROPE. The event was held under the patronage of the Bulgarian Minister of Economy. The innovative spirit of our management and engineering team made it possible to design and develop state-of-the-are solutions for critical applications and infrastructure.
As an additional application to the main BCAS interface, Volacom has developed a fully automatic system for tracking vehicles at the airport and airplanes in the vicinity up to 20km. Now, the BCAS system could be controlled based on the traffic, using automatic functions to “clean the runway” from birds and mammals without the need of human interference. The system knows the exact position of the airplane and executes the necessary command accordingly.
Volacom, together with its partners S.I.T. presented the BCAS solution at the first Kuwait Aviation Show. Experts from the GCC region, and not only, had a chance to learn more about the most advance, autonomous and reliable bird control solutions, developed by Volacom.
Volacom is happy to announce that on January 12th, the BCAS system has been commissioned at Minsk International Airport, Minsk, Belarus. The execution of the project took three months.
Each year, bird strikes cost US airlines an estimated $1.2 billion. Only part of those costs are from actual damage. The rest comes from flight delays and cancellations.
One should be aware about the possible consequences of bird strikes. The aviation industry is expected to expand with 50% by 2035. We have to implement efficient technology and techniques to mitigate the problem in long term. At Volacom, we dedicated resource and experience to provide the most effective BIRD COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM (BCAS).
King Salman and visiting Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov held official talks exploring various aspects of cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Bulgaria.
The Saudi market is of significant importance to Volacom and we are proud that our BCAS system has been recognized by GACA (General Authority of Civil Aviation of KSA) as efficient and appropriate solution to be implemented at Saudi airports.
