With many systems already in the field providing real world experience against actual threats, Liteye is developing more advanced capabilities that can be layered into their solutions. These advancements will be needed to combat the fast-growing threat from unmanned or robotic systems. "The unmanned systems industry is innovating at an incredible rate," said Kenneth Geyer, CEO of Liteye. "Unfortunately, with all the great benefits that provides, it also spawns the rogue operator who uses that tech in a malicious way. At Liteye, our goal is to stay ahead of that threat."

Liteye's close partner companies of Pratt & Miller, Numerica, and Chess Dynamics form the core team that is producing the new C-AUDS variant in Centennial. This containerized system features a state-of-the-art operator suite, hardened for use in any climate, that can easily be moved between locations. The platforms innovative design allows for the ability to "Bolt on" new technologies in the future as threats evolve in the field.

Liteye is now deploying and supporting their AUDS, M-AUDS, M-AUDS-KE, and C-AUDS variants of their C-UAS system. All four have the capabilities to detect, track, identify, and defeat enemy UAS with layers of different technologies coming together to create a solid line of defense. When you need to really protect critical infrastructure and human life from airborne unmanned threats contact Liteye.
