BIRD’s MSIS 2.0 includes modern, intuitive and user-friendly interface with advanced multi touch-screen technology, and a simplified visual design that further reduces the operator workload while enhancing the mission effectiveness
BIRD Aerosystems, the leading developer of Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO), launches the new generation of its Mission Management system (MSIS) – MSIS 2.0. In its improved version, BIRD’s MSIS 2.0 includes modern, intuitive and user-friendly interface with advanced multi touch-screen technology, multi-language support, and an overall simplified visual design that reduces the operator workload to the minimum and enhances situational awareness. Fielded and operational, the improved MSIS is platform-independent, and requires only minimal training to reach expert level operation.
The new MSIS 2.0 is currently integrated on BIRD’s new ASIO Maritime program in Africa that includes special mission aircraft, patrol ships and ground C&C center.
BIRD’s MSIS is the heart of the ASIO special mission aircraft solution, as it collects and processes vast amounts of sensor information, integrating the intelligence process with aerial surveillance, ground and maritime surveillance, target acquisition, data distribution, and reconnaissance tasks. This information is then automatically classified and clearly displayed, using advance data fusion algorithms with an easy-to-use and intuitive human-machine interface.
BIRD’s MSIS 2.0 reduces mission crew workload by display and operation of important aspects of the mission at any given time, enabling the crew to efficiently perform detection and classification of only the relevant targets. MSIS 2.0 addresses all the different aspects of the mission and integrates with BIRD’s pre-mission analysis tools, e.g. OSCAR, that enables efficient mission planning and force allocation.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems:
“MSIS 2.0 was designed by the most experienced mission operators, and built upon vast operational know-how developed by the company over the years. With the new and improved user-interface, I am confident that MSIS 2.0 will further reduce the operator workload, and enhance the operational experience of our customers.”
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.
