    BIRD Aerosystems, an Israel-based developer of Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO) and Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS), will showcase the advanced configuration of its ASIO solution for the first time at the Farnborough airshow. The new configuration of the ASIO integrates pre-mission intelligence planning tools with unique mission sensors configuration and sophisticated analysis algorithms, providing unique alerts of various suspicious activities.

    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. 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 C2 center and supporting ships.

    "Integrating pre-mission intelligence planning tools with real-time data gathered from various airborne sensors, and analyzing the data using sophisticated real-time data analysis, the new ASIO configuration offers very high capabilities for aerial surveillance and maritime patrol," Says Ronen Factor, Co-CEO and Founder at Bird Aerosystems. "The new ASIO configuration is offered as a full turnkey solution that strengthens the crew’s situational awareness and leverages the effectiveness of the maritime patrol mission."

    At the airshow, BIRD Aerosystems will present the advanced configuration of the ASIO solution installed on Textron Aviation’s Cessna Citation CJ4 aircraft.
