About us

Avitec Research GbR Katrin und Reinhold Hill is a company constituted under civil law based in the city of Osterholz-Scharmbeck, Lower Saxony, Germany. We offer expertise and services concerning technical research on bird migration. In this context we conduct installations and repairs and analyze data.

Our main focus is detection of offshore bird migration. Currently, we keep two scientists busy permanently and have additional freelancers. All of them are experienced with radar ornithology, acoustical sound detection and visual detection of birds in terms of conducting Sea-Watching and Island-Watching, or using video and infrared cameras. Our staff formerly worked for the Institute of Avian Research "Vogelwarte Helgoland".
