Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium 2019: BIRD Aerosystems to Present its Innovative AMPS Family of Solutions, Including the MACS Sensor and SPREOS DIRCM

ITAR free, BIRD's AMPS solutions are already installed on US Army Aircraft

Quad-A Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium 2019, Booth #438

[November, 2019]: 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 solutions, including the MACS Sensor and the SPREOS DIRCM, at the Quad-A Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium 2019 in Huntsville, Alabama.

BIRD's AMPS missile protection system provides the most enhanced protection for military and civilian aircraft against the growing threat of ground to air missiles (MANPADS). The AMPS family of solutions include the MACS sensor and SPREOS DIRCM:

MACS (Missile Approach Confirmation Sensor) sensor performs unique confirmation of suspected incoming missile threats detected by the main electro-optical passive sensors, and ensures zero false alarms - hence only real missiles will be declared by the system and reacted upon.

SPREOS (Self Protection Radar Electro-Optic System) DIRCM combines a radar-based confirmation sensor and an active laser jammer to ensure optimal protection against different MANPADS threat types. SPREOS uniquely performs multiple functions, including threat confirmation, tracking and jamming of advanced IR guided missiles.

ITAR free, BIRD's AMPS solutions are already installed on US Army aircraft. AMPS has also evolved into a standard system for NATO, having been selected and installed on Military, VIP and civil platforms used by NATO members.

Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems:  "BIRD Aerosystems specializes in the development and production of innovative aircraft survivability equipment. Amongst our leading solutions are the SPREOS DIRCM and MACS sensor, two patented solutions that protect military and civilian aircraft around the world against MANPADS. As a leading supplier of airborne missile protection solutions for the US Army, NATO and the UN, we are happy to participate at the Quad-A Aircraft Survivability Equipment Symposium, and to present our latest solutions here in Alabama."
