Autonomous Multi-Sensor Maritime Awareness System

BIRD Aerosystems
Herzliya, Israel

BIRD Aerosystems, a company that specializes in developing Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO), officially launched the OSCAR - Ocean Surveillance Control and Reconnaissance solution and demonstrated it for the first time at this year’s Paris Air Show 2019.

Combined with a secure over-the-cloud deployment and multi-sensor integration, OSCAR is a quick-to-deploy Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) solution delivering real-time intelligence and threat assessments for the vessels within the country’s areas of interest. Alongside the OSCAR, BIRD also presented its SPREOS DIRCM in the latest production configuration.

BIRD’s OSCAR provides 24/7 protection of the maritime domain and Tier 1 Level of prevention against illegal activities at sea such as Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, oil theft, smuggling and illegal transshipment, as well as for Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) monitoring. A fully autonomous and advanced multi-sensor system, OSCAR applies machine-learning algorithms on real-time data sources such as satellite and terrestrial AIS, satellite SAR/EO/IR, LRIT, coastal radars, tactical sensors and more, and uses it to detect, analyze and prioritize suspicious vessels while providing automatic alerts to the user once these threats are found.

Once OSCAR detects potential threats, it plans an effective flight plan for the ASIO special mission aircraft, which is then loaded into the MSIS mission management system to enable an effective surveillance mission. Additionally, during the mission OSCAR receives the real-time tactical sensor data of the aircraft which is then further analyzed to detect additional possible threats.

BIRD Aerosystems also presented its patented Self Protection Radar Electro-Optic System (SPREOS) DIRCM, which combines a radar-based confirmation sensor and an active laser jammer to ensure optimal protection against different MANPADS threat types. The patented SPREOS uniquely performs threat confirmation to ensure zero false alarms, meaning that jamming will only be activated once the threat has been confirmed and analyzed.

BIRD’s Airborne Missile Protection System (AMPS) family of solutions provides protection against all known Surface to Air Missiles (SAM) including MANPADS, Laser Beam Rider threats and radar-guided missiles. The company’s ASIO solution offers decision makers and field commanders accurate, real-time terrestrial and maritime information that enhances situational awareness. Combining in-depth knowledge of airborne operational requirements, along with innovations that drive the development of new and advanced airborne products and solutions, BIRD provides turn-key programs that include operational analysis, system design, system integration and installation, project management, extended product support, and a broad range of system engineering activities including ground testing, flight testing and system certification.
