Posted 24 February 2021 · Add Comment

BIRD Aerosystems, the Israeli developer of Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Airborne Patrol Solutions (ASIO), announced its new ASIO Protection of Critical National Infrastructure solution, at the IDEX exhibition in Abu Dhabi.


The solution utilizes state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies uniquely designed for protection of Critical Infrastructures such as oil, gas, electricity and more.

BIRD's newest and most advanced configuration of the ASIO solution, enables customers to patrol and survey their strategic assets and critical infrastructure in any weather or lighting condition. When a threat is detected by the ASIO Special Mission Aircraft mission operator, the detection location, live video, and operational data are immediately relayed to other ASIO fixed-wing aircraft and ASIO special mission helicopters for further tracking.

In parallel, target data and live airborne video is sent to Headquarters and ASIO ground vehicles for effective event management and interception of the suspected targets on the ground.

Joint CEO, Ronen Factor, said: "The need to effectively protect strategic assets such as oil and gas fields is significant in almost every country and area, certainly in UAE and the region.”
