Eurosatory 2022: Bird Aerosystems Launches Land Business Line

New Solutions Include Hybrid Detection System

Bird Aerosystems will launch a new business line of land systems at Eurosatory 2022, wqhere it will also launch two new products: Hybrid-Eye, an advanced hybrid detection system enhancing armoured vehicle protection; and µMPR, a miniature airborne radar for ground and maritime border surveillance.

Leveraging the company’s radar solutions, optical technologies, and advanced algorithms already implemented in its airborne solutions, the new all-in-one miniaturised solutions are ideal for medium to small platforms, offering a new level of detection and protection previously unavailable.

Hybrid Eye is an advanced all-in-one detection system that supports the protection of armored vehicles from wide-ranging potential threats. Tailored for active and vehicle protection systems (APS and VPS), it provides rapid detection, confirmation and tracking of a wide range of threats, including anti-tank missiles, RPGs, drones and artillery shells, while maintaining a single LRU design and the smallest SWaP currently available.

Integrating a phased-array radar, multiple IR warning detectors and a laser warning detector, the system uses Bird’s advanced in-house fusion algorithms to achieve superior multi-band detection and tracking of multiple threats, regardless of environment saturation. Compact and lightweight, the sensor enables easy installation and maintenance on vehicles of all sizes, and is fully compatible with any hard- or soft-kill system, while providing comprehensive situational awareness capabilities.

µMPR (for micro maritime patrol radar) is a miniature airborne radar with advanced proprietary technology for maritime border protection. Ideal for installation on small UAS, helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, it leverages Bird’s radar technologies, along with millimeter-wave technology to cut through sea clutter, improve detection capability, and significantly increase mission effectiveness and cost-efficiency.

Small and lightweight, the Hybrid Eye and the µMPR employ Bird’s most advanced technologies that have proved their effectiveness over years of operational activity worldwide. “As the recent conflict in Ukraine showed us, the importance of these systems for the protection of soldiers’ lives is undoubted. With both solutions already under contracts, I believe that this technological leap only marks the beginning of our activity in this arena,” commented Ronen Factor, co-CEO.

Bird will leverage its technologies for a new range of land systems capabilities at Eurosatory. (Bird Aerosystems)
