Vigilance Technologies Pty Ltd was incorporated in 2002 manufacturing the world's first bird detecting radar, developed by the company's founder, John Muehlebach. The radar-based bird detection system is still available for situations where the species and their exact location is not required.

Through collaboration with the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) and AgriFutures Australia, a new detection system has been developed based on machine vision. The new system can determine the position of an animal within a video frame regardless of whether it is stationary or moving. Species can also be identified and counted.
