AOC Europe 2022, Montpellier, France, Booth 3B
BIRD Aerosystems, a global provider of innovative defense technology and solutions that protect the air, sea, and land fleets of governments and related agencies, will present its AMPS Airborne Missile Protection Systems, including the SPREOS DIRCM, the most advanced and lightweight DIRCM solution available today, and the MACS Missile Approach Confirmation Sensor, at the AOC Europe conference in Montpellier, France.
Protecting hundreds of aircraft operating worldwide in the most dangerous arenas, BIRD Aerosystems’ innovative electronic warfare solutions integrate Electromagnetic and Electro-optic Effects to ensure optimal platform protection in the most effective way. BIRD Aerosystems’ unique technology enables the use of a Semi-Active Doppler Radar as a secondary detection sensor tasked with interrogating the approaching threat detected by the primary optical Missile Warning Sensors (MWS), and confirming that it is a real missile and not a false alarm. At the same time, it precisely assesses the nature of the particular threat, tracking it and cueing an advanced QCL dual-band laser to defeat the threat.
Ronen Factor, Co-CEO and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems: “As the recent conflict in Ukraine demonstrated, MANPADS are an extremely effective weapon that poses a real threat to military and civil aircraft and can prevent either side from obtaining air supremacy. In order to mitigate this risk and ensure the safety of aircraft and crew, the AMPS system is uniquely able to alert and confirm of an incoming threat with zero false alarms. Using the SPREOS DIRCM and optionally flares, it provides the most enhanced protection tailored for the specific threat”.
BIRD’s SPREOS (Self Protection Radar Electro-Optic System) is an advanced DIRCM system that provides enhanced protection against different types of MANPADS, including the most advanced ones, for a wide range of airborne platforms ranging from small helicopters to large transport aircraft and enables the most effective jamming response.
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.
