BIRD Aerosystems is honored to announce that following successful previous installations of its ASIO solution on King Air 350 aircraft, the company has received another order for a King-Air 350 Special Mission Maritime Patrol Aircraft from an undisclosed customer. Under the contract, BIRD will purchase the aircraft and transfer it to a Maritime Patrol Aircraft using its renowned ASIO solution.
BIRD’s ASIO Special Mission Aircraft is an end-to-end airborne Information, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) solution ideal for maritime and ground surveillance, search and rescue, patrol and monitoring. ASIO offers decision-makers and field commanders accurate, real-time terrestrial and maritime information that dramatically enhances situational awareness. A true force multiplier, ASIO enables even small crews to deliver detailed and comprehensive surveillance information covering large geographic areas.
The ASIO maritime solution provides customers with an integrated Aerial-Naval-Land solution. It facilitates maritime and coastal surveillance, patrol and survey of borders and strategic assets, and Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) monitoring capabilities. Leveraging BIRD’s advanced mission management system (MSIS), information gathered from the various sensors is autonomously prioritized and automatic alarms of suspicious activities are provided in real-time to the ASIO Maritime Patrol Aircraft enabling an optimized airborne mission. The ASIO aircraft provides all the participants in the mission operation with an effective, integrated, real-time situational awareness overview over land and water, enabling efficient detection, tracking and interception of any suspicious activity.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems: “We are happy to announce that following successful installations of our ASIO solution on various aircraft, including King-Air 350, BIRD Aerosystems has received another order for a King-Air 350 Special Mission Maritime Patrol Aircraft. Our vast experience allows us to transfer ordinary aircraft to special mission aircraft, providing our customers’ custom-made turn-key surveillance solutions”.
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.
