Herzliya, Israel, April 2015 – BIRD Aerosystems Ltd.
BIRD Aerosystems secured additional contract to protect two Mi-17 operating under the United Nations (UN) mission in Africa.
The project is a follow-on project for the UN and will enable the UN helicopters to operate in a secure and protected way in the most demanding areas.
BIRD will install the AMPS-M system which provides full threat coverage, very low false alarm rate and maximum warning time for the deployment of appropriate countermeasures ensuring the highest level of protection for crew and aircraft.
Additionally the AMPS system is the only Self protection system certified on Mi-8/17 helicopters including the appropriate Service Bulletins issued by MIL Design Bureau. The system has been installed by many of the leading MIL approved Maintenance Repair Organization (MRO) around the world on different types of Mi-8/17.
