Bird Aerosystems has announced that the company will participate and present its Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) family of solutions at the IDET exhibition in Brno. AMPS is currently in service with hundreds of military and VIP aircraft worldwide, including aircraft of NATO member countries such as the Czech Republic.

At the exhibition, Bird Aerosystems will present its patented SPREOS DIRCM, which supports aircraft protection by providing threat confirmation, tracking and jamming of  advanced IR-guided missiles. Using a semi-active interrogation radar, SPREOS confirms the validity of the incoming threat hence eliminating all false alarms, while precisely tracking and analysing the threat’s unique information to enable an adequate jamming response.

The company will also present the AMPS AeroShield pod, an all-in-one pod solution that supports the installation of BIRD’s AMPS on narrow and wide-body aircraft. The AeroShield pod offers anti-missile protection by using both Bird’s SPREOS DIRCM and flares.
