Bird Aerosystems, a leading developer of Special
Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO) and Airborne Missile Protection
Systems (AMPS), will showcase the advanced configuration of its
ASIO solution for the first time at the Farnborough airshow next
The new configuration of the ASIO integrates
pre-mission intelligence planning tools along with unique mission
sensors configuration and sophisticated analysis algorithms,
providing unique alerts of various suspicious activities.
Ideal for maritime surveillance, the ASIO MPA
(maritime patrol aircraft) can detect, investigate and effectively
intercept suspicious activities like smuggling operations, piracy,
illegal fishery or terror threats.
Prior to the flight, ASIO operators analyze
satellite images, Automatic Identification System (AIS) data and
other information of the sailing vessels, automatically flagging
suspicious activities that will be further investigated by the
ASIO MPA (maritime patrol aircraft).
During the flight, the ASIO
MPA surveillance sensors will supplement the pre-flight analyzed
data with real-time information received from the onboard sensors,
including unique integration with a Communications Intelligence
(COMINT) sensor and real-time communication, providing the
information to the C&C center and supporting Navy ships.
"Integrating pre-mission intelligence planning
tools with real-time data gathered from various airborne sensors,
and analyzing the data using sophisticated real-time data
analysis, the new ASIO configuration offers very high capabilities
for aerial surveillance and maritime patrol," said Ronen Factor,
Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at Bird Aerosystems. "The
new ASIO configuration is offered as a full turn-key solution that
strengthen the crew’s situational awareness and leverage the
effectiveness of the maritime patrol mission".
Together with Textron Aviation Inc., Bird Aerosystems will present the advanced configuration of the ASIO
solution installed on Textron Aviation’s Cessna Citation CJ4
Equipped with BIRD's ASIO solution, Textron's CJ4 VIP
transport aircraft is transformed into a sophisticated maritime
