BIRD Aerosystems Introduces MSIS 2.0


BIRD Aerosystems, the leading developer of Airborne Missile Protection Systems (AMPS) and Special Mission Aircraft Solutions (ASIO), launches the new generation of its Mission Management system (MSIS) – MSIS 2.0.

In its improved version, BIRD’s MSIS 2.0 includes modern, intuitive and user-friendly interface with advanced multi touch-screen technology, multi-language support, and an overall simplified visual design that reduces the operator workload to the minimum and enhances situational awareness. Fielded and operational, the improved MSIS is platform-independent, and requires only minimal training to reach expert level operation.

The new MSIS 2.0 is currently integrated on BIRD’s new ASIO Maritime program in Africa that includes special mission aircraft, patrol ships and ground C&C center.

BIRD’s MSIS is the heart of the ASIO special mission aircraft solution, as it collects and processes vast amounts of sensor information, integrating the intelligence process with aerial surveillance, ground and maritime surveillance, target acquisition, data distribution, and reconnaissance tasks. This information is then automatically classified and clearly displayed, using advance data fusion algorithms with an easy-to-use and intuitive human-machine interface.

BIRD’s MSIS 2.0 reduces mission crew workload by display and operation of important aspects of the mission at any given time, enabling the crew to efficiently perform detection and classification of only the relevant targets. MSIS 2.0 addresses all the different aspects of the mission and integrates with BIRD’s pre-mission analysis tools, e.g. OSCAR, that enables efficient mission planning and force allocation.

Ronen Factor, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems:

“MSIS 2.0 was designed by the most experienced mission operators, and built upon vast operational know-how developed by the company over the years. With the new and improved user-interface, I am confident that MSIS 2.0 will further reduce the operator workload, and enhance the operational experience of our customers.”
