SPREOS DIRCM in Aeroshield POD Installation
BIRD Aerosystems is to deliver its SPREOS DIRCM and certify the Aeroshield POD system for use on the A320, the company announced on 2 August.
The SPREOS system provides enhanced aircraft protection through a combination of threat confirmation, tracking and jamming capabilities. The new contract covers the supply of a complete APMS-MD system – including SPREOS – to be installed in the company’s all-in-one Aeroshield POD, which will then be certified (in a supplemental type certificate process) for the Airbus A320.
“BIRD Aerosystems AMPS has proved its efficiency in protecting large aircraft such as the Airbus 320 [and its] solutions are in long-term use by customers around the world, including Airbus and other large commercial, governmental, military, and transnational organisations,” commented Co-CEO, Ronen Factor.
