Liteye Expands CUAS Approach with Raytheon PHASER

Contributing Purpose-Built Systems to Identify, Target and Cue Effector

Liteye Systems, Inc. (Centennial, CO), has recently provided Raytheon with a purpose-built system to visually identify, target and cue the latter’s PHASER high-powered microwave system to an intended target. The PHASER uses a directed energy beam to permanently damage or destroy a UAS before it can damage critical infrastructure or personnel.  

Teaming with Colorado-based teammate Numerica, Liteye has approached the UAS problem through a collaborative, layered strategy. “We recognize a need for our systems to integrate with higher level C2 networks, but we also appreciate the need for our systems to work effectively by itself or directly with other systems and sub-systems depending on the mission,” commented Ken Geyer, CEO

Liteye’s Anti UAS Defense System (AUDS) is a combat-proven counter-UAS (CUAS) solution with multiple layered technologies to detect, track, identify and defeat malicious threats.  Portions of this layered approach have been used to push critical information through higher-level networks to improve situational awareness. They have also been purpose-linked directly to other weapon systems to cue them to a target. The company’s layered CUAS solution has also been used to successfully cue a 30mm cannon to a positively identified UAS target.  “In combination with other weapon systems like the 30mm cannon, or Raytheon Missiles & Defense’s PHASER, Liteye continues to be extremely successful in eliminating a drone, even in difficult flight engagements,” added Geyer.
