Integrating pre-mission intelligence planning tools along with a unique mission sensor configuration and a sophisticated real-timedata analysistools, the ASIO solution automatically alerts the mission operators of suspicious targets and activities
Farnborough Airshow 2018, Textron Chalet, Outside Exhibit Area, L2
BIRD Aerosystems, the leading developer of Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO) and Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS),will showcase the advanced configurationof its ASIO solution for the first time in the Farnboroughairshow. The new configuration of the ASIO integrates pre-missionintelligence planning toolsalong with unique mission sensors configurationand sophisticated analysis algorithms, providing unique alerts of various suspiciousactivities.
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-timedata analysis, the new ASIO configuration offers very high capabilities for aerial surveillance and maritime patrol" SaysRonen 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 aircraft. Equipped with BIRD's ASIO solution, Textron's CJ4 VIP transport aircraft is transformed into a sophisticated maritime patrol aircraft.
