Eurosatory 2016:  BIRD Aerosystems presents a new generation of DIRCM systems: the Self Protection Radar Electro-Optic Sensor (SPREOS)

Eurosatory, Paris, June 13-17 2016, Defence & Security International Exhibition (Hall 6 Booth C353)

Herzliya, Israel – May 29th, 2016 – BIRD Aerosystems specializes in the developing and deploying of two main product lines: Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Airborne Surveillance, Information and Observation (ASIO) solutions.

The company will showcase its new Directional Infra-Red Counter Measure (DIRCM) system called SPREOS (Self Protection Radar Electro-Optic System).

SPREOS, a joint development with a large European Company, combines a radar based sensor (verification) and an active laser (DIRCM), and provides enhanced protection against the immediate threat of Man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS).

The system can be used in a wide-range of airborne platforms, ranging from small helicopters to large transport aircraft. SPREOS integrates into a single Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) multiple functions, including threat confirmation, tracking and jamming of advanced IR guided missiles.

Upon receiving a warning from the onboard Missile Warning System (MWS), SPREOS quickly slews to the direction of the incoming threat and activates the dual band radar function for confirmation and high precision tracking. Following the confirmation and tracking SPREOS deploys the dual-band counter measure laser causing the missile to miss the aircraft.

Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder: “The new SPREOS system is a true game changer in the market, ensuring enhanced protection of aircrafts against any type of MANPADS launch, with zero activation as a result of false alarms. We developed the SPREOS based on the vast experience BIRD gained in hundreds of projects that have already been implemented in recent years.

Factor, who is a former combat pilot in the Israeli Air Force (IAF) also stated that “we are mostly proud that our development team succeeded in creating this high-end solution which will be the most advanced in the market with the most cost effective price tag in its category.”
