BIRD’s AMPS missile protection system provides the most enhanced protection for military and civilian aircraft against the threat of ground to air missiles (MANPADS). The system is designed to automatically detect, verify, and foil SAM attacks through the effective use of countermeasure decoys (Flares and Chaff) and by Directional Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) that jam the missile’s IR seeker and protects the aircraft. BIRD’s AMPS has evolved into a standard system for NATO, having been selected and installed on Military, VIP and civil platforms used by NATO members.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder: “This key client cares for its soldiers and personnel, and therefore they choose to protect their helicopters using BIRD’s advanced AMPS solution. BIRD’s AMPS ensure the safety of flight for hundreds of aircraft which are operating in the most demanding operational theaters.”
