Counter UAS Defense System
Liteye Systems, Inc.
Liteye Systems, Inc., a company that specializes in counter unmanned aerial systems, recently announced Liteye SHIELD, the next level in multi-mission, multi-domain counter UAS defense systems.
Liteye SHIELD incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning techniques with a newly designed SPYGLASS™ 3D radar, EO and IR tracking to increase the speed and confidence of the system. The SHIELD Command and Control further ensures the full Detect, Track, ID Kill Chain is automated and conducted at machine speed. According to Liteye, SHIELD is the next generation, cutting-edge technology required to defend against the rapid technology maturation and proliferation of small UAS threats worldwide.
Manufacturing and integration of SHIELD critical components are based at Liteye and partner locations in the United States. Success over the last five years with Liteye’s deployed combat proven Anti-UAS Defense System (AUDS), has earned Liteye significant technical experience in this market. It is this experience that has led to the development of Liteye SHIELD primarily for the C-UAS mission, but significant for additional surveillance and electronic attack missions. From first combat deployment in Iraq 2016 to today with systems deployed worldwide, Liteye’s continually adding to its repertoire of experience with the rapidly evolving threat.
According to the manufacturer, SHIELD has a number of unique performance characteristics, including a fully autonomous kill chain. The Autonomous Kill Chain affords machine speed detect, track, identification and classification allowing an operator to monitor the environment, manage multiple systems and only step in for final positive ID and trigger pull to fulfill the mission. Key components of the autonomous kill chain are Spyglass 3D radar for Detect & Track, AI-based RF Detect, AI Target Prioritization, and automated video track.
SHIELD also features dispersed, networked command and control utilizing a Man-ON-the-Loop local C2, and it is networked, requiring low manpower to operate any system from any console with a distributed common operation picture. The local C2 provides multi-sensor resource management and sensor fusion to an intuitive operating system with machine learning principles and 3D targeting for cueing networked effectors.
Finally, through its Multi-Domain/ Multi-Mission capability with OEM service and support, SHIELD operates across air, ground, surface, and the radio frequency (RF) spectrum, effectively providing multi-domain critical infrastructure protection. Multi-Mission SHIELD provides platform agnostic (mobile, transportable, fixed/semi-fixed) mission essential service for integrated air and ground base defense, convoy protection, offensive electronic attack, wildland fires, space launch protection, event security and more.
Liteye’s mature service and support program is currently operational and ensures the systems and operators stay proficient and fully mission capable. Located in Centennial, Colorado, the company specializes in designing and integrating military and commercial counter unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS), as well as manufacturing a range of US AUDS, Drone Sense and Warn Systems, rugged high-resolution head mounted displays (HMD), augmented sights, thermal surveillance systems, covert surveillance systems, electronic warfare packages, radar systems, and fire control software solutions.
