The High Point Aerotechnologies division of private investment company Highlander has acquired multi-mission defense company Liteye Systems. Liteye develops, integrates, and manufactures Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS) designed to neutralize hostile drone threats. Highlander recently established High Point to pursue leading technologies in the C-UAS, UAS and related defense industries, says the company press release.
Founded in 2000 with a focus on selling thermal cameras and head-mounted displays to military and law enforcement agencies, Liteye in 2015 shifted its focus to C-UAS technologies. The company manufactures and integrates C-UAS systems that detect, identify, track, and disrupt hostile unmanned aircraft. The company operates as an integrator through exclusive strategic partnerships to offer configurable and hardware-agnostic systems that are customized to fit mission objectives and customer requisites. Additionally, this modular approach eliminates hardware dependencies and facilitates technology upgrades to ensure that Liteye’s systems are always equipped with the latest technologies. The company has long-term relationships with US and international government agencies.
