Eurosatory 2018: Plasan Sasa and BIRD Aerosystems reveals a SandCat armored vehicle equipped with BIRD’s advanced mission management system (MSIS)
Equipped with BIRD’s MSIS, the SandCat armored vehicle can participate and lead Task Force Ground Missions while communicating in real time with the other Task Force segments, whether aircraft, helicopters, or ground sensors, allowing all operating teams to share a unified, real-time situational awareness overview and enhance the mission effectiveness.
Eurosatory 2018, Ext Pe6b, Stand B191
[Herzliya, Israel]: Plasan Sasa and BIRD Aerosystems have teamed up to offer a SandCat armored vehicle equipped with BIRD’s advanced mission management system (MSIS). The two companies will display the special intervention vehicle for the first time at Eurosatory.
SandCat, Plasan’s family of 4X4 armored vehicles, offers the flexibility and robustness needed for every defense and security mission. While providing high-end protection, SandCat maintains its maneuverability and agility, even when equipped with surveillance and communications systems. The SandCat family has been designed to support a wide range of challenges and missions including: law enforcement, Special Forces, homeland security, border patrol and armed conflicts. SandCats are also used to transport troops, as a command and control centers, and to transport VIPs though conflict zones. More than 600 SandCat’s are used on every type of mission, on all types of terrain around the globe.
BIRD’s advanced Multi-Sensor Integration System (MSIS) manages the complete mission profile and ensures that all operating teams share a unified, real-time situational awareness. The MSIS is an integral part of BIRD Aerosystems’ Airborne Surveillance, Intelligence and Observation (ASIO) solution. The system provides a complete Task Force solution which enables to collect and process large amounts of information gathered from the airborne platforms and that is automatically classified and efficiently displayed. The information is then shared in real–time with the ground segments of the Task-Force such as the C&C center and ground intervention vehicles and enables all operating teams to share a unified situational awareness picture.
Equipped with BIRD’s MSIS, the SandCat armored vehicle can receive real-time information and data from the airborne sensors, allowing commanders to more effectively oversee and manage the ground missions.
Dani Ziv, Plasan Sasa CEO: Plasan is proud to cooperate with the leading C4i companies for borders and strategic infrastructure security integrated solutions.
Ronen Factor, BIRD Aerosystems Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder: “We are honored to cooperate with Plasan and are excited to install BIRD Aerosystems’ mission management system on the SandCat armored vehicle. The installation of the MSIS on the vehicle will extend its operational capabilities, enable it to participate in Task Force Ground Missions requiring close coordination with airborne surveillance platforms, and allow it to exchange real-time mission-critical information. We are pleased to present this concept for the first time at Eurosatory”.
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.
