BIRD’s AMPS are installed on the Czech Air Force Mi-17 helicopters and operationally deployed in complicated conflict zones
IDET 2021, Brno, Stand 69
BIRD Aerosystems, a global provider of innovative defense technology and solutions that protect the air, sea, and land fleets of governments and related agencies, will participate and present its AMPS (Airborne Missile Protection Systems) family of solution at the IDEX exhibition in Brno. Operational and combat-proven, AMPS is currently protecting hundreds of military and VIP aircraft worldwide, including aircraft of NATO member countries such as the Czech Republic.
At the exhibition, BIRD Aerosystems will present its patented SPREOS DIRCM, which enhances aircraft protection by providing unique threat confirmation, tracking and jamming of all advanced IR-guided missiles. Using a semi-active interrogation radar, SPREOS confirms the validity of the incoming threat hence eliminating all false alarms, while precisely tracking and analyzing the threat’s unique information to enable the most effective jamming response. Compact and Lightweight, SPREOS is an ideal solution for a range of airborne platforms and can be integrated with any legacy MWS system.
The company will also present the AMPS AeroShield pod, an all-in-one Pod solution that supports the installation of BIRD’s AMPS on narrow and wide-body aircraft. The AeroShield pod offers the most comprehensive anti-missile protection by uniquely using both BIRD’s SPREOS DIRCM and Flares, and enabling customers to fly fully protected in the most challenging theaters. Easily installed, the AeroShield POD can be simply transferred between different platforms.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems: “BIRD Aerosystems AMPS has proved its efficiency in protecting military and VIP aircraft against all known Surface to Air Missiles (SAM), including MANPADS, Laser Beam Rider threats and radar-guided missiles. With the Czech air force amongst our customers, we are happy to participate at the IDET exhibition in Brno and present our innovative, combat-proven solutions.”
The NIMASA Deep Blue project has proved its efficiency as the International Bargaining Forum (IBF) has recently removed Nigeria from the list of countries designated as risk maritime nations
Following the delivery of its ASIO Maritime Task Force Solution to Nigeria, as part of the NIMASA Deep Blue Project, BIRD Aerosystems has completed a successful live demonstration of the ASIO aircraft capabilities, including real-time interception of vessels performing illegal activities at sea.
Israeli company BIRD Aerosystems, has completed the deliveries of additional AMPS systems, including the MACS – a Missile Approach Confirmation Sensor, and a provision of SPREOS – the Self Protection Radar Electro-Optic System DIRCM, for the Czech Air Force Mil Mi-17 military helicopters. The MACS is a semi-active confirmation radar that reduces the false alarm rate of the overall missile warning system. This program is part of a follow-up program with the Czech Air Force that has been protecting its helicopters with the AMPS system for the last 15 years and has deployed them in the most complex environments, such as Afghanistan.
