BIRD Aerosystems, a global provider of innovative defense technologies and solutions that protect the air, sea, and land fleets of governments and related agencies, has signed a new contract for the delivery of the SPREOS DIRCM solution and for the certification of BIRD Aerosystems’ AMPS-MD on Airbus 320 type aircraft.
The advanced SPREOS DIRCM Solution will enhance aircraft protection by providing unique threat confirmation, tracking and jamming of all advanced IR-guided missiles. Using a semi-active interrogation radar, SPREOS confirms the validity of the incoming threat hence eliminating all false alarms, while precisely tracking and analyzing the threat’s unique information to enable the most effective jamming response.
The complete AMPS-MD system, including the SPREOS, will be installed into BIRD’s all-in-one AeroShield POD, which will be certified on the customer A-320 aircraft in collaboration with Airbus France, the aircraft OEM, achieving a supplemental type certificate (STC) for the system installation on the aircraft.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems: “BIRD Aerosystems AMPS has proved its efficiency in protecting large aircraft such as the Airbus 320, and we are proud to enhance the protection of our customer with our unique SPREOS DIRCM system while additionally proving them with the required validation of the airworthiness of the installation by the OEM. BIRD Aerosystems’ solutions are in long-term use by customers around the world including Airbus and other large commercial, governmental, military, and transnational organizations, and we appreciate the confidence they’ve placed in our 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.
