BIRD Aerosystems’ AeroShield POD wins first place in Systematics’ projects competition
Designed using SOLIDWORKS, the AeroShield POD is the only pod solution that supports protection by both DIRCM and flares),
[Herzliya, October 31, 2017]: BIRD Aerosystems, the leading developer of Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO) and Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS), has won the first place in Systematics’ Solidworks projects competition that took place yesterday, as part of the Systematics’ annual conference in Tel-Aviv. The competition included 17 different projects.
Designed using Systematics’ SOLIDWORKS software, the Aeroshield Pod is an all-in-one POD solution which provides the most comprehensive anti-missile aircraft protection for narrow and wide body aircraft and VIP jets.
Integrating the AMPS-MV system which includes BIRD’s SPREOS Directional Infra-Red Counter Measure (DIRCM) as well as Missile Launch Detection Sensors (MILDS) and additional Flare Dispensers, AEROSHIELD is the only pod solution that supports protection by both DIRCM and flares (Counter Measure Dispensing System), ensuring the highest aircraft survivability.
Easily installed, BIRD’s AEROSHIELD POD provides optimum platform protection with minimal interference to the aircraft, while fully complying with EASA/FAA civil aviation regulation procedures. Using the AMPS-MV advanced configuration which ensures a Zero False Alarm rate, the AEROSHIELD POD is ideal for wide-body aircrafts such as the A320, B737, B777, A380 etc., and can be easily transferred between different aircrafts.
The AeroShield POD was presented as part of the Static display at the Systematic conference, and later on was chosen by the 1,500 participants at the conference to be the winning project among the 17 different projects that took part in the competition. This is the first time the AeroShield POD is presented in Israel.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder: “We are honored that BIRD’s AeroShield Pod solution has won the first place in Systematics’ Solidworks projects competition. Our experience and knowledge of the customers’ needs allow us to develop high-end products, which are already being used by many different customers worldwide, including NATO members, the United Nations (UN) Air Operations, and the US and Canadian governments. BIRD Aerosystems’ will keep standing at the forefront of technology, and provide innovative products for aircraft protection and mission management”.
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.
