The US Air Force has awarded Liteye, together with Huntington Ingles Industries, a multiple-year contract worth USD7 million to support Counter UAV Defense Systems (C-AUDS) deployed in Europe and Africa.
Liteye will implement on-site Field Service Representative (FSR) support across the African and EUropean theatres of operations, and provide subject matter expertise and material solutions to maintain equipment required to mitigate Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). Objectives of the service team will be to increase indications and warnings, enhance the US security defense posture, enable the freedom of movement, increase partnership capacity and interoperability, and foster global security and stability throughout the Areas of Responsibility (AOR). The Liteye services team will provide 24/7 reach-back support, training, and system updates to ensure that the systems remain effective against the threats that are continuously increasing in complexity.
Liteye’s C-sUAS solutions can be layered with multiple effectors and battle management systems to Detect, Track, Identify and Defeat, threats operating in the Air, on the Ground, on the Surface, and within the Electromagnetic Spectrum. Liteye C-AUDS C-sUAS systems were contracted to the USAF between 2018 – 2020 to provide detection, tracking, and identification of Group 1 & 2 UAS in a range of combat environments spread out across the globe. The drone threat has been growing exponentially every year with attacks not only against military targets but critical infrastructure such as airports, oil refineries, and cities. Liteye’s subject matter experts discover new technologies that protect vital IP and assets at all levels of a site. Since 2016 Liteye’s counter-drone systems have been protecting lives on the battlefield.
