Clear Flight Solutions has won €1.6m to invest in ‘robird’ drones that mimic the flight of peregrine falcons in order to scare other birds away from damaging private property.
This modern scarecrow startup has come out of the University of Twente in the Netherlands and it wants to prevent the ‘billions of dollar’ damage made by birds at airports every year, which sometimes results in loss of life.
US-based seed investors Cottonwood Euro Technology Fund, which opened its first European office in the Netherlands in July last year, has made the investment.
“The bird control problem is much bigger than we initially imagined. Clear Flight Solutions has developed technology with tremendous potential that addresses a global problem.
We have also identified various other applications of the technology. That makes this the ideal business case for our first European investment,”said Ray Quintana, lead general partner of the Cottonwood Euro Technology Fund.
It is hoped that using drones will stop the birds learning how to get around measures made to prevent them nesting and the tech can be applied to other industries, including agriculture, waste management, oil and gas, and harbors.Nico Nijenhuis, CEO of Clear Flight Solutions, said:
“We have completed a very successful trial at waste management site in Twente, which is one of the most challenging environments. Currently, we have committed to a number of trial runs and are in discussion across every application area – including one of the leading European airports. Cottonwood’s investment will allow us to execute these trials, and their worldwide network with industry leaders will bring our company to the next level.”

Isn’t it an oxymoron that the very people who deny the existence of God, and all his beautiful creations, seek to consistently copy his work? They are slowly replacing the world with “creatures” in the form of hybrids, drones, and cyborgs, seeking to elevate themselves above God. What hypocrisy, while they deny a creator, they themselves stand boastfully and pridefully, ‘look at what “I” created.’ To claim the creation, you would need to own the design. Their prideful inventions, of ‘cheap cheap’ birds, will never compare to the real, living, breathing, beautiful birds that grace the skies, and are part of an ecosystem that these imposters want to disrupt and destroy, with mere machines.
The credit for all living things are to be given to God, who created them at the inception of this world:
And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good – Genesis 1:21 (KJV).
“lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV).
“Power and signs and lying wonders”…rejection of truth, and for this “God shall send them a strong delusion that they shall believe a lie” – 2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 (KJV). Satan, has already set the stage for deception – he teaches today the lie of the immortal soul. “…Ye shall not surely die…then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.’ -Genesis 3:5 (KJV).
