SPREOS and AeroShield Also on Display
BIRD Aerosystems will present its Airborne Missile Protection System (AMPS) family of self-protection solutions at IDET 2021 in Brno next week. Operational and combat-proven, AMPS is currently protecting hundreds of military and VIP aircraft worldwide, including aircraft of NATO member states such as the Czech Republic, which already operates it on its Mi-17 helicopters.
The SPREOS DIRCM, which enhances aircraft protection by providing unique threat confirmation, tracking and jamming of all advanced IR-guided missiles, will also be on display. Using a semi-active interrogation radar, SPREOS confirms the validity of an incoming threat, hence eliminating false alarms, while precisely tracking and analysing threat data to enable the most effective jamming response. Compact and Lightweight, SPREOS is an ideal solution for a range of airborne platforms and can be integrated with any legacy missile warning system.
Highlighted will be the AMPS AeroShield pod, an all-in-one pod solution that supports the installation of BIRD’s AMPS on narrow- and wide-body aircraft. It offers comprehensive anti-missile protection by combining the SPREOS DIRCM with flares, enabling customers to fly fully protected in the most challenging theatres. Easily installed, the AeroShield pod can be simply transferred between different platforms.
Ronen Factor, Co-CEO, stated “BIRD Aerosystems AMPS has proved its efficiency in protecting military and VIP aircraft against all known surface-to-air missiles, including MANPADS, laser beam-rider threats and radar-guided missiles.”
