Bird AeroSystems delivers surveillance solution
Bird AeroSystems has delivered its ASIO surveillance solution to an unspecified African Country.
The ASIO Surveillance solution provided includes multiple Maritime Patrol Aircraft installed with Bird’s advanced MSIS mission management system, which was also at the Naval HQ Command and installed on a number of vessels.

ASIO delivers an extremely powerful, comprehensive and flexible maritime patrol solution, enabling efficient detection, tracking and interception of any suspicious activity at sea.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, the Airborne Surveillance, Intelligence and Observation (ASIO) system is an end-to-end ISR solution that provides real-time SIGINT, COMINT, ELINT and IMINT information for wide-area maritime and ground surveillance, as well as targeted monitoring missions.
