Abstract : The United States Air Force (USAF) annually spends millions of dolalrs for the replacement or repair of aircraft components damaged by bird-aircraft collisions. Since March 1969, the Air Force has had an active research and development program at the Air Force Weapons Laboratory (AFWL) to reduce the bird-aircraft strike hazard. The report reviews those Technical Notes (TNs) and Technical Reports (TRs) that have been published as a result of the research effort. (Author)
