AUDS is a counter drone system designed to disrupt and neutralize Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) or Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

(The AUDS system combines electronic-scanning radar target detection, electro-optical (EO) tracking, classification and directional RF inhibition capability. AUDS is a smart-sensor and effector package capable of remotely detecting small UAS and then tracking and classifying them before providing the option to disrupt their activity. The system may be used in remote or urban areas to prevent UAS being used for terrorist attacks, espionage or other malicious activities against sites with critical infrastructure.

“This order from the U.S. Government, and designation as part of the Defense Industrial Base Sector during this difficult time is an example of the trust Liteye has garnered with the U.S. Government to deliver much needed capability.”

“Liteye is operating at full capability and has NOT been impacted.  We are taking all appropriate steps to mitigate risk to employees while ensuring Liteye can meet ALL customer demands.”

AUDS is an integral part of a wider networked surveillance and defense system, with its soft kill capabilities making it a very attractive option for both military, internal and border security forces.

Where the situation demands restraint under provocation and where active, yet discrete, deterrence is required, AUDS delivers a very powerful message.

The system can be operated from both fixed locations and from a mobile platform, where mobility offers both flexibility and protection.
