Singapore Airshow 2018, Textron Booth: Static Display CD11
BIRD Aerosystems, in cooperation with Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, will display a unique surveillance special mission concept at the Singapore Air Show in Textron’s static display CD11. The concept transforms the class-leading Cessna Citation CJ4 platform into a sophisticated intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) special mission aircraft with BIRD’s field-proven Airborne Surveillance, Intelligence and Observation (ASIO) solution.
The CJ4 ASIO Special Mission Aircraft allows its users to enjoy extraordinary capabilities as it is able to carry multiple sensor configurations that supports diverse maritime operational missions. With added speed and range, the Cessna Citation CJ4 is able to reach points of interest far quicker and cover a greater mission area, making it ideal for maritime patrol, Costal surveillance, Search and Rescue and more.
The CJ4 ASIO solution to be displayed for the first time in the Asia Pacific region is based on BIRD’s extensive experience in providing Citation Jets for diverse Maritime Patrol Missions worldwide. Equipped with the ASIO solution, the Citation CJ4 jet offers an enhanced solution that is ideal for the Asian market, in which the need for effective maritime patrol and coastal protection is salient.
BIRD Aerosystems’ ASIO solution is a complete end-to-end airborne Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) system. ASIO provides decision makers and field commanders with accurate, real-time terrestrial and maritime information. Integrated with BIRD’s unique Mission Management System and using the latest surveillance and monitoring sensors, the ASIO solution has become one of the most affordable, reliable and capable Special Mission Aircraft Solutions available today. BIRD’s ASIO solution can be installed on a wide range of aircraft and is a complete yet highly customizable airborne operational system.
