BIRD Aerosystems wins a contract to enhance operational capabilities of current fleet of ASIO equipped aircraft in South America
Under the new contract, the company will enhance the operational capabilities of the fleet of aircraft which is currently in service enabling them to conduct more effective operations with improved connectivity and data sharing within the Task Force
BIRD Aerosystems, the leading developer of Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO) and Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS), has recently been contracted to enhance operational capabilities of current fleet of ASIO equipped aircraft of a South American customer.
The operational enhancements include an upgrade of BIRD’s MSIS Mission Management System to enable enhanced mission sensor operations, precise tracking of suspected targets and the use of advanced mission management algorithms which altogether are expected to further reduce the operator workload during the mission and to enable a more effective mission.
The upgrade will also enhance the SATCOM utilization of the system, enabling the communication via SATCOM to transfer system data dynamically as well as high-resolution videos.
In addition, BIRD Aerosystems will add advanced task force command and control (C&C) capability to one of the customer’s ASIO aircraft, enabling high-level commanders onboard the aircraft to fully command over the task force missions from the air while also communicating in real time with the ground teams and the headquarters. The C&C aircraft shall further enhance customer mission effectiveness by providing real-time situational awareness and decision making to both commanders in the field and onboard the Aircraft.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems: “BIRD Aerosystems offers its customers turn-key solutions that are specifically tailored for the needs of each customer, and our broad range of support and maintenance services ensures that each customer will be able to get the most out of our systems and maintain high operational capability. I am confident that the enhancement of operational capabilities of the current ASIO aircraft fleet under the current contract will allow the customer to manage its missions in an even more effective and efficient way.”
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.
