Herzliya, Israel, November 18th, 2015,
BIRD Aerosystems was awarded the prestigious 2015 Customer Value Leadership Award in the Mission Aircraft ISR System industry by Frost & Sullivan. The award reflects BIRD’s unique ASIO solution, which combines a high level of customization and technology to support the specific requirements of each customer.
ASIO developed by BIRD is an advanced and flexible airborne surveillance solution that is ideal to participate in maritime and ground surveillance, search and rescue, patrol and monitoring missions.
Frost & Sullivan’s consulting manager, Yaki Baranes, explained why BIRD Aerosystems was chosen: “BIRD enables military and non-military users to enhance their capabilities by using C4ISR systems. The company’s unique structure allows it to individually approach each customer in order to achieve his goals-operational and budget. Strong relationships with customers and successful execution of projects are leading to further contracts and revenues through new procurement or upgrade programs.”
“Receiving this Customer Value Leadership Award from such a well-respected organization confirms BIRD’s position as a leading provider of special mission aircraft solutions that is demonstrating a constant business success based on customer satisfaction,” said Ronen Factor, BIRD Aerosystems Co-CEO. “It is also very rewarding that Frost & Sullivan has acknowledged us for our innovative and fully integrated mission systems that have been delivered to customers worldwide and support them in protecting their national sovereignty.”
