Mobile counter-UAS package introduced by Liteye SystemsNews
August 18, 2020
CENTENNIAL, Colo. Liteye Systems has launched a counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) solution that it calls the Trailer Anti-UAS Defense System (T-AUDS), an on-the-move or fixed-site C-UAS package that the company says is able to detect and defeat radio-frequency-controlled and silent flight drones while mobile and then transition quickly to static mode.
Liteye has partnered with Citadel Defense to integrate that company's Titan 3 radio frequency (RD) detection into the T-AUDS; the Titan 3 technology applies artificial intelligence and machine learning to reliably detect, identify and defeat unauthorized drones operating across the electromagnetic spectrum.
Ryan Hurt, vice president of business development for Liteye Systems, said of the launch: “We are pleased to be working with Citadel and believe the combination of sensors and effectors, especially when integrated into higher level C2 system like [Kongsberg Geospatial's C2 solution] MEDUSA, provide the most comprehensive on-the-move and fixed-site protection capability against UAS threats available today. The Liteye AUDS system is multidomain and multimission. Using this system, operators can detect more than just small UAS, they can positively I.D. air and ground targets, classify and track their RF signature, pass this positively identified target data to other weapon systems, C2 systems, or simply defeat or deny the target with an onboard electronic attack capability.”
