Bird AeroSystems, an Israeli provider of innovative defense technology, has installed its advanced SPREOS DIRCM and Aeroshield missile protection systems on multiple Airbus A319 aircraft for an undisclosed European customer.

At the core of this project is the SPREOS (Self Protection Radar Electro-Optic System), a DIRCM system for missile approach verification, tracking, and laser jamming. SPREOS features semi-active dual-band radar fused with IR tracker and IR countermeasure capabilities.

According to the company, it ensures precise protection against MANPADS threats and seamlessly integrates with diverse missile warning systems. The installation also included Bird's versatile AMPS solution, designed for both military and civilian markets, providing complete protection against ground-to-air threats, including MANPADS attacks, for helicopters and VVIP aircraft for heads of state. Additionally, the installation of the AeroShield pod solution on the Airbus A319 Aircraft was expanded to be installed also for Dassault Falcon 7X aircraft.
