Characteristics of the Shockwave Generator
The shockwave generator uses precisely controlled detonations to create pressure waves through the air. Because birds' bodies have an extensive system of air sacs this wave of increased pressure is immensely disorienting to them (though not at all dangerous). The change of air pressure is about the same as riding the elevator down five to six floors. Unlike with cannons that use only loud noise, birds do not become accustomed to the sensation of the pressure wave washing over them.
- The cannon has no moving parts
- Range: ca. 500 m, depending on fuel
- Fuel: LPG, propane, or ethylene (power varies among fuel types)
- Fuel consumption: 2.5 g per shot
- Rate of fire: 60 shots per minute (1 Hz)
- Weight: 80 kg (not including gas cylinder)
- Calibre: 125 mm
- If combined to a network, a large area can be covered.
- remote control available
- very low cost of ownership
Using the Shockwave generator requires training.
