Reykjavik-based Startup Flygildi has entered into an agreement with the Icelandic Aviation Authority (Isavia) regarding the testing of its proprietary technology for bird strike Prevention.
The project involves the use of the Flygildis Silent Flyer to scare away birds from runways and airport surroundings. Isavia has offered hangars for further testing at Reykjavik Airport. Bird Strike prevention has been a costly problem with Flygildi receiving an EU grant to continue its development to meet the problem.
We have made considerable progress in terms of software development especially after Peter Höller joined our team. We are at a point where we cant begin testing in a controlled environment and Isavia is now finding us a hangar” says founder Hjalti Harðarson.
The Silent Flyer can be used for a broad range of applications with its use in security being a key user case.
