BIRD Aerosystems‘ advanced SPREOS DIRCM Solution will enhance 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.
The complete AMPS-MD system, including the SPREOS (left), will be included in BIRD’s all-in-one AeroShield POD, which will be certified on the Airbus 320 aircraft in collaboration with Airbus France, achieving a supplemental type certificate (STC) for the system installation on the aircraft.
