Liteye Systems Inc has delivered the last unit of the first-round of C-AUDS (Containerized Anti-Unmanned Defense Systems), to Northrop Grumman Corporation.
The C-AUDS containerized systems features an operator suite, hardened for use in any climate and can be scaled to meet multiple types of mission and location requirements. C-AUDS is a commercially available product that can be customized for non-DoD C-UAS, surveillance, and other security needs to protect and defend sensitive installations, facilities, events, etc.
A few days earlier Liteye announced that in partnership with OpenWorks Engineering it “successfully demonstrated the SkyWall net-capture system against real-world UAS threats while attending the JIDO Hard Kill 2 event in the desert of the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, USA…During the event, the operator easily targeted the UAS using the onboard SmartScope. Once initiated, SkyWall neutralized the threat by launching a non-explosive, air powered projectile timed to deploy in front of the target and entangle it in its net. The SkyWall launcher can be utilized with a range of projectiles which includes the SP40 round with net and parachute option which lowers the captured drone to the ground under a parachute, or the SP10 net-only round that has a larger net for increased effectiveness against fast moving drones at greater ranges.”
