BIRD’s AMPS Airborne Missile Protection System provides the most enhanced protection for military and civilian aircraft 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 Directional Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) that jam the missile’s IR seeker and protects the aircraft.
AeroShield-M (Mini) is an all-in-one Mini Pod solution for aircraft protection. Integrating BIRD’s AMPS in a compact all-in-one pod, AeroShield-M ensures the highest aircraft survivability uniquely combining DIRCM and Flares protection and ensuring the highest effectiveness against the most advanced missile threats. The AeroShield-M is easily installed and can be simply transferred between different platforms in order to support high operational availability.
Ronen Factor, Co-CEO and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems: “The Falcon 7X is a very popular VIP and military platform, and we are pleased to complete this project and equip this leading platform with BIRD Aerosystems’ airborne missile protection system.”
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.
