Bell Helicopter Collaborates with BIRD Aerosystems on Bell 407 ASIO


Bell 407

Bell Helicopter, an American rotorcraft manufacturer, has announced on July 30, 2015, that they will be integrating the BIRD Aerosystems Surveillance, Intelligence and Observation (ASIO) package in the Bell 407GXP for a complete end-to-end airborne information surveillance and reconnaissance solution (ISR). This ASIO package provides field commanders and decision makers with real-time, accurate maritime and terrestrial information. ASIO is capable of being rapidly deployed in a wide range of configurations, as ASIO is highly-customizable. The ASIO package is a true force multiplier which is ideal for coastal patrol, border surveillance, and irregular warfare requirements. Through the use of ASIO, small crews are able to deliver comprehensive and detailed surveillance information for a large geographic region.

“Bell Helicopter and BIRD Aerosystems have worked closely together to bring this solution to the market,” said Shaul Mazor, the vice president of business development and marketing for BIRD Aerosystems. “The Bell 407 ASIO, which is now available to our customers, combines the state of the art Bell 407GXP and an advanced mission package that includes a wide range of mission specific sensors and communications systems all integrated together using BIRD's advanced mission management system.”

“We recognize that our customers need to protect themselves against national security threats,” said the regional sales director of Bell Helicopter. “We believe that the Bell 407 ASIO offers the most advanced solution to support our customers with their evolving operational challenges and brings them the improved multi mission capability of the Bell 407GXP which makes it the first optimal platform for integrating the scalable ASIO package.”

The Bell 407GXP is the most recent update to the best-selling Bell 407 platform, offering the best in class hot and high performance with its new M250 Rolls-Royce engine which boasts fuel efficiency as well as power. This latest upgrade also offers an additional 50 pounds of carrying capability.
