Bird Strike Analysis

The task of ensuring that the damage caused by the impact of a bird on a newly installed radome can be costly and time consuming.  However, for certain modifications, it is possible, using statistical analysis alone, to demonstrate that a direct bird strike on a radome or antenna would not be possible.

If it can be shown that a bird strike is geometrically impossible at the required bird strike conditions, demonstration of compliance with 14 CFR 25.571(e) may not be necessary. Stark/AMI can provide this analysis.
