PRLog - Jan. 10, 2011 - PATONG BEACH, Thailand -- Dr Jerry LeMieux, the inventor of a patented aircraft bird strike warning system for pilots will give a lecture at the Prince of Songkla University on January 21 at 10 AM. The lecture is sponsored by the Faculty of Engineering, Department of Computer Engineering, Prince of Songkla University, 80 Moo 1, Vichit-Songkhram Rd.,
Kathu, Phuket 83120 Thailand.

Over the past 25 years, aircraft collisions with birds have caused many large airliners to crash and hundreds of lives to be lost. It is estimated that aircraft bird strikes annually cost the aviation industry $650 million in the United States and over $1.2 billion worldwide. In the next 10 years, annual US air passenger traffic is expected to increase from the current value of 600 million to 1 billion. We have been lucky so far; it has been two years since US Airways Flight 1549 ditched in the Hudson River. This accident is a warning sign that should not be ignored. We need to start investing in technology to permanently solve this problem just as we solved the problem of mid-air collisions and collisions with the ground. The book; “One Strike and You’re Out” discusses the efforts of those who are currently working on this problem, the approaches they are taking in order to solve it, and the latest technologies that are brought together in a patented  bird strike warning system for pilots.

Doctor Jerry LeMieux has over 35 years and 10,000 hours of aviation experience. He has flown military fighter aircraft and is a major airline pilot. He was responsible for solving national aviation issues as an Executive Safety Chairman for the Airline Pilots Association (ALPA). He holds the BS, MS and PhD degrees in electrical engineering and has over 24 years of experience with design, development, integration and test of airborne and ground-based radar systems. Dr. LeMieux has been on the staff and faculty at MIT, Boston University, University of Maryland, Daniel Webster College, and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University where he has taught courses in electrical and aeronautical engineering and advanced mathematics. While piloting a fighter aircraft, he has personally experienced an aircraft bird strike that resulted in the loss of a jet engine. He is the author of a patent for an aircraft bird strike warning system.

Dr LeMieux has published a book on his invention and it can be found at http://www.onebirdstrike.com. To follow worldwide birdstrikes see http://www.twitter.com/birdstrikewarn and to follow the latest technology improvements visit http://onebirdstrike.blogspot.com
