“Thanks to our innovative BCMS© VENTUR solution—powered by Lenovo and NVIDIA technology—we are poised to help the aviation industry reduce the risks and costs of birdstrikes.”
Headquartered in Rimini, Italy, The Edge Company (TEC) is a visionary startup that aims to improve lives and safety through AI. Developing solutions for high-tech industries such as aerospace, one of TEC’s main offerings is BCMS© VENTUR—a bird and drone detection system based on smart cameras and custom-developed AI algorithms.
Collisions between birds and aircraft represent a significant threat to aviation. In the most extreme cases—such as US Airways Flight 1549, captained by Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger in January 2009—birdstrikes can bring down commercial passenger jets. Even if a birdstrike does not compromise the safety of a flight, the damage they cause can often be significant, driving up the cost of repairs for aircraft owners and operators. These events are also extremely common; around the world, a birdstrike happens every 15 minutes, and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) estimates that as many as 70% go unreported.
