Israeli company BIRD Aerosystems will present its MACS (NG) Sensor and the SPREOS DIRCM, at DSEI Japan. The systems will be presented for the first time in Japan together with NTK International.
With an open architecture and an ability to connect to any missile warning system, passive or active, both the MACS (NG) Sensor and the SPREOS DIRCM can be supplied as an add-on solution for any existing airborne protection system and any platform. They cab be easily installed, are robust, have virtually zero false alarms, and provide enhanced protection for military and civilian aircraft against the growing threat of MANPADS.
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. Compact and Lightweight, SPREOS uniquely performs multiple functions, including threat detection and confirmation, tracking and jamming of advanced IR guided missiles.
“We are proud to present our innovative airborne missile protection solutions in Japan for the first time, and believe that both the MACS (NG) sensor and the SPREOS DIRCM are ideal for the Japanese – as they can be provided as an add-on solution for any existing MWS, and ensure enhanced protection against MANPADS, which are a growing threat,” said Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems.
