A modern jet engine inlet protection system that protects against large birds and operates autonomously, that is dormant in routine aircraft operations, that automatically actuates its protective device(s) only at the immediate point of need, then returning it (them) to a non-interfering position, including a RADAR system and a LIDAR system which detect birds entering the intended flight path of the aircraft, and fast computer-implemented computational algorithms that track and identify those from the detected set that are (1) projected to enter a zone w...
The invention claimed is: 1. A jet engine protection system for an aircraft comprising:a. a sensor sub-system positioned on said aircraft, adapted to scan an area of interest in front of said aircraft, adapted to detect a flying bird having a size greater than a predetermined size, adapted to detect whether said flying bird is within a predetermined range of said aircraft, adapted to generate bird characteristics signals representative of said flying bird and adapted to transmit said flying bird characteristics signals to a digital processor;b. a threat ...
