BIRD Aerosystems, the developer of Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Airborne Patrol Solutions (ASIO), will launch and present its new ASIO Protection of Critical National Infrastructure solution, which utilizes state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies uniquely designed for protection of Critical Infrastructures such as oil, gas, electricity and more, at the IDEX exhibition in Abu Dhabi.

The ASIO Critical National Infrastructure solution, BIRD's newest and most advanced configuration of the ASIO solution, enables customers to patrol and survey their strategic assets and Critical Infrastructure in any weather or lighting condition. When a threat is detected by the ASIO Special Mission Aircraft mission operator, the detection location, live video, and operational data are immediately relayed to other ASIO fixed-wing aircraft and ASIO Special Mission Helicopters for further tracking. In parallel, target data and live airborne video is sent to Headquarters and ASIO ground vehicles for effective event management and interception of the suspected targets on the ground.

Operationally deployed by several customers worldwide, the ASIO Critical National Infrastructure solution provides a multi-layered approach, effectively preventing persons or items from illegally accessing ground assets and sensitive infrastructure and effecting the availability, integrity, or delivery of essential services in the country.
