BIRD Aerosystems, Hensoldt team up
BIRD Aerosystems has selected Hensoldt’s new PrecISR advanced multi-mode radar family for integration into its radar control and display (RCD) and mission management system (MSIS), the company announced on 23 January.
As a part of a cooperation agreement signed between the two companies, BIRD Aerosystems will adapt its RCD to control and manage Hensoldt's advanced PrecISR1000 radar. The radar data will be collected and processed by BIRD's MSIS, which will automatically classify, prioritise and display the information gathered from the radar along with additional information from other onboard sensors using advanced algorithms.
The PrecISR airborne, multi-mission surveillance radars feature gallium nitride AESA antenna technology with two-dimensional e-scan capability, combined with large bandwidth multi-channel radar core electronics and integrated radar signal processing.
PrecISR is designed for all types of airborne surveillance missions in 24/7 operation and in all weather conditions, to detect threats on the ground, at sea and in the air.
BIRD's RCD is integrated into its advanced MSIS which manages the complete mission and enables ASIO airborne, naval and ground units to share real-time information.
