ADEX Azerbaijan International Defence Exhibition, Baku, Booth A2112
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 present its AMPS Airborne Missile Protection Systems, including the SPREOS DIRCM, the most advanced and lightweight DIRCM solution available today, at the ADEX International Defence Exhibition in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Operationally proven and installed on hundreds of aircraft worldwide, including Mi-17 helicopters, BIRD’s AMPS missile protection system provides the most enhanced protection for aircraft and helicopters against the growing threat of ground-to-air missiles (MANPADS). The system is designed to automatically detect, verify, and foil SAM attacks through the effective use of countermeasure decoys (Flares and Chaff) and by the SPREOS DIRCM that jam the missile’s IR seeker and protect the aircraft.
Queued by the Missile Warning Sensors (MWS), BIRD’s SPREOS (Self Protection Radar Electro-Optic System) DIRCM can uniquely confirm that it is a real missile and not a false alarm. At the same time, it precisely assesses the nature of the particular threat, tracking it and cueing an advanced QCL dual-band laser to defeat the threat.
Based on BIRD Aerosystems’ past experience and proven record, SPREOS DIRCM ensures optimal platform protection in the most effective way available today.
Ronen Factor, Co-CEO and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems: “Operationally proven, protecting hundreds of helicopters and aircraft operating in the most dangerous arenas worldwide including Mi-17 helicopters, BIRD’s AMPS with the SPREOS DIRCM provides enhanced aircraft protection that is uniquely tailored to defeat each specific threat.”

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.
