AeroShield(M) is tailored to support the installation of BIRD’s AMPS on medium-size VIP jets such as the Falcon and Gulfstream. The compact pod integrates Missile Launch Detection Sensors (MILDS) and Flare Dispensers, and can incorporate either the MACS sensor or SPREOS DIRCM, according to the specific needs of each customer.

According to the company, the AeroShield(M)POD is already fully certified, and will be installed and operational in the coming months. 

Ronen Factor, Co-CEO and Founder of BIRD Aerosystems: “AeroShield(M) is a compact version of BIRD’s renowned AeroShield pod, which is already installed on numerous aircraft around the world, protecting them against the growing threat of MANPADS. Smaller and lightweight, AeroShield(M) ensures maximum aircraft protection with reduced drag and minimal interference. Easily installed and can be simply transferred between different platforms, AeroShield(M) is an ideal pod solution for medium-size VIP jets.”
