The company showcased the newest configuration of the Airborne Missile Protection System, AMPS-MV, installed on the MI-8 Helicopter of Ukrainian Helicopters.

AMPS-MV is the only system compatible with Civil Aviation regulations and eligible to be installed on both civil and VIP platforms. The system has evolved into a standard system at NATO, including the aircrafts used during UN Air Operations and by USA and Canadian governments.”
The AMPS system was developed in cooperation with AIRBUS Defence and Space and is installed in over 2,000 aircrafts and provides more than 85% of the global market outside of the United States.
