Bird Aerosystems – AMPS-MV Configuration for More Protection Against Missiles

Bird Aerosystems has specialized in the manufacturing of Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO) and Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) for different customers around the world, including NATO forces, the United Nations, and the United States Government. The firm has just released the newest version of the Airborne Missile Protection System that will be used on the multi-purpose MI-8 Helicopters for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Ground-to-air missiles, otherwise known as MANPADS have become a growing threat for both military and civilian aircrafts. Bird’s new configuration, the AMPS-MV provides the defense needed against missiles. In collaboration with Airbus Defense and Space, the AMPS-MV system has been installed in 2 thousand aircraft carriers. This accounts for 85% of the worldwide market- excluding the United States.

AMPS-MV is based on a concept that allows aircrafts to confirm any missile threats and reduce a system’s FAR to almost nothing. This original concept is termed the Missile Approach Confirmation Sensor (MACS). Its low FAR level allows the AMPS-MV system to comply with the European Aviation Safety Agency and Federal Aviation Administration’s regulations. The system is also able to be installed in civil and military platforms which make it a unique component.
