"Our team is excited to test the ability of our counter UAV system to protect a commercial airport," stated President of Liteye.
CENTENNIAL, CO, November 15, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Liteye Systems, Inc. (www.Liteye.com), provider of the AUDS counter UAV system, will conduct testing of its system at Denver International Airport, under their CRDA agreement signed with the FAA this past May. AUDS is a TRL-9 level system, meaning it is already deployed with the military providing protection of critical infrastructure.
"Our team is excited to demonstrate the ability of our counter UAV system to protect a commercial airport," stated Thomas Scott, President of Liteye Systems. He added, "Being able to conduct this testing in our own Colorado back yard, that makes it even better."
The AUDS system will be evaluated by the FAA. The agency along with its federal government partners - particularly the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) - will work with Liteye to study how effective their technologies are, while ensuring they do not interfere with the safety and security of normal airport operations.
AUDS is a second generation counter UAV system that detects, tracks, identifies, and defeats unmanned vehicles or UAV. The AUDS system utilizes state of the art radar, precision thermal and daylight cameras, advanced video tracking, and non-kinetic defeat capabilities. AUDS is already fielded with other US customers, and in full production. It is currently being utilized to protect critical infrastructure, other than airports. The system has been successfully tested in numerous countries, defending against class 1 and 2 commercial UAV's as well as homemade versions. With almost 2000 sorties flown against it, AUDS is tried, tested, and real world utilized.
The CRDA with Liteye expands upon collaborative efforts with industry to develop system standards to identify unauthorized UAS flights near airports, which could pose a hazard to manned aircraft. The agency has seen a steep increase in reports of small UAS close to airports over the last two years.
