BIRD Aerosystems and Ceská Letecká Servisní Announce Strategic Cooperation

BIRD Aerosystems, a global provider of innovative defence technology and solutions that protect the air, sea, and land fleets of governments and related agencies, and Ceská Letecká Servisní (CLS), a division of CSG Aerospace which specialises in the integration and modernisation of avionics systems, announced strategic cooperation aimed at expanding their joint marketing efforts and meeting the increasing demand for advanced airborne missile protection systems in Central Europe. By joining forces, both companies aim to strengthen their presence in the European market, expand their customer base, and effectively address the high demand for airborne missile protection systems in Central Europe.

Monika Kowalczkova, General Director of ?eská Letecká Servisní (?LS), said, “We are delighted to join forces with BIRD Aerosystems in this strategic cooperation. Their industry-leading airborne defence solutions complement our avionics integration and modernisation capabilities perfectly. Together, we are well-positioned to meet the evolving challenges of the defence industry and contribute to the security and protection of fleets and ground assets.”

Commenting on the partnership, Ronen Factor, Co-CEO and Founder at BIRD Aerosystems, said, “We are excited to collaborate with ?eská Letecká Servisní (?LS) to enhance our market reach further and address the growing demand for BIRD’s AMPS missile protection systems in Central Europe. ?LS brings unique expertise and experience in avionics integration and modernisation, making them an ideal partner for us. Together, we will be able to provide comprehensive solutions that cater to the specific requirements of our customers.”

The strategic cooperation arrives after the two companies have already joined forces on several successful projects, where BIRD’s AMPS airborne missile protection systems, including the SPREOS DIRCM, were provided and installed on aircraft of European customers. BIRD’s AMPS Airborne Missile Protection System provides the most enhanced protection for military and civilian aircraft against the growing threat of ground-to-air missiles (MANPADS). The system is designed to automatically detect, verify, and foil SAM attacks through the effective use of countermeasure decoys (Flares and Chaff) and Directional Infrared Countermeasures (DIRCM) that jam the missile’s IR seeker and protect the aircraft. The two companies are presenting their unique airborne defence solutions at the 2023 Paris Air Show.
