Herzliya, Israel – February 2017: BIRD Aerosystems unveils the Aeroshield POD: an integrated solution that supports the installation of the Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) on VIP wide body aircraft. Exposed by the company for the first time, the AEROSHIELD POD is fully operational and was already sold to a number of customers.
BIRD Aerosystems specializes in the developing and deploying of two main product lines: Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Airborne Surveillance, Information and Observation (ASIO) solutions.
Integrating the AMPS-MV system which includes 5 Missile Launch Detection Sensors (MILDS), 1 Missile Approach Confirmation Sensor (MACS), 2-4 Flare Dispensers and an inertial measurement unit (IMU) BIRD’s Aeroshield POD is easily installed, and provides Optimum platform protection with minimal interference to the aircraft.
Using the AMPS-MV advanced configuration which ensures a Zero False Alarm rate, Aeroshield is the only pod solution that supports protection by flares, while fully complying with EASA/FAA civil aviation regulation procedures.
Small and lightweight, the Aeroshield POD is ideal for wide body aircrafts such as the A320, B737, B777, A380 etc., and can be easily transferred between different aircrafts.
Shaul Mazor, VP of marketing and business development: “The Aeroshield POD is an all-in-one solution, integrating the most advanced Airborne Missile Protection Systems in a small and lightweight platform. The system is designed to meet the growing threats of Man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS) to civil and military aviation, and to fulfill the requirement for protection on wide body aircrafts”.

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.
