BIRD Aerosystems and HENSOLDT sign a follow-on contract to support advanced user capabilities for the Multi-Mode Radar

Hits 342

  • BIRD will customize its RCD (Radar Control and Display) system and MSIS mission management system to enable enhanced user capabilities tailored for the specific operational requirements of HENSOLDT’s PrecISR™ advanced multi-mode radar users
BIRD Aerosystems

Herzliya, Israel. 28 January 2021. BIRD Aerosystems, the developer of Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Airborne Surveillance, Information, and Observation (ASIO) solutions, has received a follow-on contract to develop additional advanced capabilities for its RCD (Radar Control and Display) that controls HENSOLDT’ PrecISR™ advanced multi-mode radar family.

After successfully completing the first phase of development and customization of the RCD to the PrecISR™ earlier this year, the next phase of development has been agreed upon by the companies and will include developing specific and more advanced capabilities tailored for HENSOLDT customers.

The new capabilities to be implemented by the RCD include, for example, Dynamic SAR imagery footprints, control of multi-layered data visualization, and enhanced real-time radar information and status. Furthermore, the RCD system will be integrated with additional surveillance sensors used by the customers along with the HENSOLDT Radar (e.g., AIS and others).

The follow-on contract and the new capabilities that will be developed under this contract are all focused on customizing the RCD for new customers and programs. BIRD will also provide an ILS package that includes RCD training and system documentation, to be provided to HENSOLDT and its Customers.

Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems, “We are delighted that HENSOLDT has once again put their trust in BIRD to further develop the RCD for their Radar Customers, expressing their satisfaction from BIRD’s advanced Mission Management System that proved to be highly efficient in reducing mission crew workload. Our experienced team of engineers is working hard to ensure that BIRD’s RCD, which is now the default control interface of HENSOLDT PrecISR™, will be ideal for the specific needs of the end-customers.”

PrecISR™ airborne surveillance radar is HENSOLDT’s latest technology response to tackle the challenges of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions at Air, Sea and Land.

Designed for a wide range of airborne platforms (UAVs, helicopters, fixed wing and special mission aircraft), PrecISR™ is the ISR sensor of choice for armed and security forces to mitigate human and drug trafficking, piracy and smuggling, illegal fishing, terrorism, oil dumping or any other environmental threat.

PrecISR™ comprises of the newest generation gallium nitride AESA antenna technology with two-dimensional e-scan capability, combined with large bandwidth multi-channel radar core electronics and integrated radar signal processing. Even in the most challenging environmental conditions and sea states, PrecISR™ users will take advantage of an unrivalled level of situational awareness with significant flight cost savings.

Detecting, tracking and classifying more than a thousand objects, the PrecISR™ increases the surveillance capabilities and mission efficiency for any special mission aircraft.
