Herzliya, Israel – June 10th, 2016
BIRD Aerosystems, together with KAI (a subsidiary of JSC “NC Kazakhstan Engineering”), raised great interest amongst the guests of the KADEX exhibition which was held last week in Astana, Kazakhstan.
At the exhibition, BIRD showcased its ASIO Special Mission System mounted on the Kazakhstan Armed Forces EC-145 helicopter and displayed how the ASIO system dramatically enhances mission effectiveness while supporting a wide range of missions from Homeland Protection to Oil/Gas pipeline surveillance, Search and rescue (SAR) and more.
BIRD’s demonstration in KADEX increased its exposure to many target audiences, strengthening ties with Kazakh Defense Officials, offering the opportunity to establish contacts with several potential customers from Kazakhstan and other countries around the globe.
The experience and knowledge gained by BIRD Aerosystems in past years, among them, the special mission solutions, serve as an asset that could accelerate worldwide business in the field of security and defense.
BIRD and KAI will continue to work closely together to implement the EC-145 ASIO solution into the Kazakhstan defense market.
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.
