Provides the most enhanced protection to Military and Civil aircraft against MANPADS attacks. AMPS-MD includes BIRD’s SPREOS, a patented DIRCM system that uniquely provides Missile Verification, Tracking, and Jamming.
AMPS-MD is designed to automatically detect, verify, and foil SAM attacks through the effective use of Directional Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) that jam the missile’s IR seeker and protects the aircraft additionally by countermeasure decoys (Flares and Chaff).
BIRD’s SPREOS, an integral part of the AMPS MD system, combines a Semi-Active Dual Band Radar and Directional IR Countermeasure. Queued by the Missile Warning Sensors, SPREOS points towards the suspected threat, performs a Doppler-based interrogation to confirm the existence of a valid threat, and extracts its key parameters. In addition, SPREOS precisely tracks and points an advanced 5ht generation solid-state Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) towards the threat for the most effective jamming of the missile while continually assessing the jamming effectiveness.
Operationally proven, the AMPS MD solution with the patented SPREOS DIRCM ensures optimal aircraft protection tailored to defeat them most advanced missile threat.
