More bees, clover and laser
Test field site at a white clover field of Krenkerup Gods (Lolland, Denmark). Main aim of study is to generate temporal and spatial activity maps of flight active bees to investigate behaviour.

Testing early field prototype at a glider plane airfield site in Denmark
Our team profiling laser beam and testing optical cross section with an early prototype of the field equipment.
Clover growers are increasingly aware of the measures that can promote conditions for bees, but there is not exact information on how best to approach the task. New research and development shows that laser based monitoring equipment can give us valuable information about the bees’ movements in crops. This has been tested in white clover in Denmark in collaboration with Århus University.
Total solar eclipse September 1st 2016
FaunaPhotonics and a team of researchers were in the field in Tanzania measuring vector species abundance in the vicinity of a village before, during and after the total solar eclipse. A 1km static entomological LIDAR transect was installed adjacent to relevant habitats known to harbour breeding and feeding Anopheles mosquitoes - a key vector of malaria. The remote monitoring instrument profiled insect activity over the fields. LIDAR data from this field test provides our team data to assess ability to cluster wild insect vectors based on sizing information and wing beat frequencies.
Setting up BIRDAR equipment in Ebeltoft Havn in Denmark nearby offshore wind farm
Purpose of system is to detect, recognize and deter birds away from wind turbines. Radar detects an object. Coordinates is sent to BIRDAR. BIRDAR moves towards object. Shoots movie. Recognition software determines if it is a bird.
Novel surveillance solution to remotely count and identify the species of disease-carrying mosquitoes
The InnoBooster program invests in promising ideas from small and medium sized companies, start-ups and scientists. The program has a strong focus on innovative companies with the potential to create growth and jobs in Denmark. When investing in companies, the fund does not receive shares in the companies in return.
Testing and adapting a Radar-LIDAR multi sensor bird detection and deterrence system for wind farms
The Fund provides co-funding for private enterprises that have developed a prototype for an innovative product with a significant commercial potential. The Market Development Fund supports testing and adaptation of prototypes in operational environments or at a prospective customer's site before market introduction. During the testing phase, user feedback and other relevant data are systematically collected to ensure the technical performance of the prototype. In the next step, the enterprises carry out the final development and adaptation of the product.
