The company confirms that it has recently received another follow-on order from the US Government for additional AMPS systems
Quad-A Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium, Booth 302
[November, 2018]: BIRD Aerosystems, the leading developer of Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Airborne Surveillance, Information and Observation (ASIO) solutions, will present its AMPS Family of products, including the MACS sensor and the SPREOS DIRCM, at the Quad-A Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium. Towards the Quad-A symposium, BIRD Aerosystems confirms that following the successful deployment of BIRD’s AMPS by the US Army, the company has received another follow-on order of additional AMPS from the US Government.
BIRD’s AMPS Family include the MACS sensor, which performs confirmation of suspected incoming missile threats and ensures a zero False Alarm Rate with maximum aircraft protection, and the SPREOS DIRCM, which combines a radar-based confirmation sensor and an active laser jammer, and provides enhanced protection against the immediate threat of Man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS). Both solutions are ITAR free. The SPREOS DIRCM is presented in the USA for the first time in its production configuration.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder: “We are happy to once again participate at the Quad-A Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium, and to present our cutting-edge AMPS Family, which are already in use by the US Army. BIRD Aerosystems recently received another follow-on order of additional AMPS from the US Government, and we see this as another step towards becoming a central supplier of innovative airborne solutions for the US Army”. He continued: “Besides the US government, BIRD Aerosystems is looking to further extend our offering to the US market in the next years, and offer both the MACS sensor and the SPREOS DIRCM as part of the different ASE solutions”.
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

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.
