Bird-Busting Robot Made to Keep Airports Safe

Posted: Updated:

A roving bird–buster developed by the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute is armed with technology designed to put the fear of death into birds that fly too close to airport runways.

Developers say it's better than current anti–bird technology because it's mobile.

The International Civil Aviation Organization says bird strikes account for more than a billion dollars in airplane damage every year.
