The ASIO maritime solution delivered is currently in full operational use by the country’s security forces, protecting the country’s territorial water
Israeli BIRD Aerosystems’, the developer and manufacturer of the Airborne Surveillance, Information and Observation (ASIO) solution, has recently delivered its ASIO Multi-Segment task force solution to a country in Africa. The ASIO maritime program delivered is currently in operational use by this country’s security forces, protecting the country’s territorial water from different threats including piracy, terror, and smuggling.
BIRD’s ASIO maritime solution provides customers with an integrated Aerial-Naval-Land solution. It facilitates maritime and coastal surveillance, patrol, survey of borders and strategic assets as well as Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) monitoring capabilities. The ASIO Maritime surveillance solution provides an operational surveillance and security task force including Fixed Wing surveillance aircraft tailored with maritime mission sensors, Naval Ships, and HQ command.
Designed to achieve maximum mission effectiveness, the ASIO Maritime solution includes BIRD’s advanced Multi Sensor Integration System (MSIS), which manages the complete mission profile and ensures that all operating teams share a unified, real-time situational awareness overview over land and water. The MSIS collects and processes large amounts of information gathered from all onboard sensors. This information is then automatically classified and quickly and clearly displayed, using state of the art algorithms with an easy to use and intuitive human machine interface.
BIRD’s MSIS reduces mission crew workload by display and operation of important aspects of the mission at any given time, enabling the crew to efficiently complete detection and classification of only the relevant targets.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder: “BIRD’s advanced maritime ASIO solution is an ideal solution for protection against threats such as piracy, smuggling, illegal fishing, oil pollution, illegal underwater activities and other criminal and terror forces. Leveraging BIRD’s advanced mission management system (MSIS) to integrate the information gathered from the various sensors, BIRD’s ASIO maritime solution provides all operating teams a unified, real-time situational awareness overview over land and water, thus enabling efficient detection, tracking and interception of any suspicious activity. We are excited to provide our advanced maritime ASIO solution to another customer, and convinced that our system will effectively improve the protection of this country’s territorial water”.
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.
