ADEX 2019: BIRD Aerosystems presents RCD
BIRD Aerosystems has developed a Radar Control and Display (RCD) for Hensoldt's PrecISR multi-mode radar family.
The company will present the RCD along with its Mission Management System (MSIS) at Seoul ADEX 2019, demonstrating integration with the Hensoldt PrecISR 1000 radar.
BIRD's RCD and MSIS provide the operator interface to control and manage Hensoldt PrecISR radars. The data from the PrecISR radar is collected and processed by BIRD's MSIS, which automatically classifies, prioritises and displays the information gathered from the radar along with additional information from other onboard sensors. This enables airborne ISR operators to accomplish large surveillance area coverage and a complete surveillance mission in one flight attitude.
Together, BIRD's RCD integrated into BIRD's advanced MSIS manages the complete mission and enables airborne, naval and ground units to share real-time information. Using advanced algorithms and an intuitive, human-machine interface, BIRD's RCD and MSIS reduces mission crew workload, enabling the crew to efficiently perform detection and classification of relevant targets.
Ronen Factor, co-chief executive officer and founder, BIRD Aerosystems, said: ‘Designed by the most experienced mission operators, BIRD's RCD and MSIS reduces the operator workload and enhances the operational experience of our customers. BIRD Aerosystems provides turn-key solutions that are specifically tailored for the needs of each customer, and we are honoured that Hensoldt has selected BIRD to develop the control interface for its PrecISR multi-mode radar family.’
