BIRD Aerosystems is to present its AMPS family of solutions, including the patented SPREOS DIRCM, at the IDET 2021 defence expo in Brno.


Press Release, 29 September 2021: BIRD Aerosystems, a global provider of innovative defence technology and solutions that protect the air, sea, and land fleets of governments and related agencies, will participate and present its AMPS (Airborne Missile Protection Systems) family of solutions at the IDET exhibition in Brno. Operational and combat-proven, AMPS is currently protecting 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 enhances aircraft protection by providing unique threat confirmation, tracking and jamming of all 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 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 MWS system.

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 the most comprehensive anti-missile protection by uniquely using both BIRD’s SPREOS DIRCM and Flares, and 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-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems: “BIRD Aerosystems AMPS has proved its efficiency in protecting military and VIP aircraft against all known Surface to Air Missiles (SAM), including MANPADS, Laser Beam Rider threats and radar-guided missiles. With the Czech Air Force amongst our customers, we are happy to participate at the IDET exhibition in Brno and present our innovative, combat-proven solutions.”
