BIRD Aerosystems will present the AeroShield POD in its full configuration for the first time at the Paris Air Show.
In its full configuration, the AeroShield POD is available with BIRD Aerosystems’ SPREOS Directional Infra-Red Counter Measure (DIRCM) solution, making it the only pod solution that supports protection by both DIRCM and flares.
Integrating the full Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) into an all-in-one POD solution which includes BIRD’s SPREOS Directional Infra-Red Counter Measure (DIRCM) as well as Missile Launch Detection Sensors (MILDS) and additional Flare Dispensers, the AeroShield POD was designed to provide the most comprehensive anti-missile aircraft protection for narrow and wide body aircraft and VIP jets. The AEROSHIELD POD is already fully operational and in use on VIP aircraft, the company said in a statement Thursday.
BIRD’s AEROSHIELD POD provides platform protection with minimal interference to the aircraft, while complying with EASA/FAA civil aviation regulation procedures. Using the AMPS-MV advanced configuration which ensures a Zero False
Alarm rate, the AEROSHIELD POD is ideal for wide body aircrafts such as the A320, B737, B777, A380 etc., and can be transferred between different aircrafts.
In addition, BIRD Aerosystems together with Textron Aviation, will present a unique CJ4 ASIO Special Mission Aircraft (SMA) solution that combines BIRD’s Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO) solution and Textron Aviation’s Cessna Citation advanced CJ4, which transforms the VIP transport aircraft into a Special Mission Aircraft. With added speed and range, the Cessna Citation CJ4 is able to reach points of interest far quicker, and cover a greater mission area, making it ideal as a special mission Jet for both land and maritime surveillance missions.
BIRD Aerosystems’ Airborne Surveillance, Intelligence and Observation (ASIO) solution is a complete end-to-end airborne Information, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) solution.
ASIO provides decision makers and field commanders with accurate, real-time terrestrial and maritime information. Integrated with BIRD’s unique Mission Management System and using the latest surveillance and monitoring sensors, the ASIO solution has become one of the most affordable, reliable and capable Special Mission Aircraft Solution available today.
BIRD’s ASIO solution can be installed on a wide range of aircraft and is a complete yet highly customizable airborne operational system.
Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder: “We are proud to present our latest solutions at the Paris Air Show. This include our SPREOS DIRCM solution integrated within the AEROSHIELD Pod which is the only pod solution that supports protection by both DIRCM and flares, and thus is an ideal all-in-one solution for protection of large aircraft and VIP jets. Additionally we will be presenting together with Textron Aviation the ASIO CJ4 SMA Citation solution which is a unique Special mission aircraft solution that enables users to enjoy extraordinary aircraft capabilities along with a comprehensive multi-sensor configuration that support diverse operational missions.
