Liteye Systems has formed a new Field Operations division to provide consultation, fielding, training, services, and support operations for all of the company’s counter-UAS (unmanned aerial system) activities. Liteye has deployed numerous anti-drone solutions worldwide, and this new division has been built on the experience of supporting the combat-proven Anti-UAS Defense System (AUDS), which has been in use with the US military since 2016.

The services provided by the new division will include 24/7 technical field support, hardware/software installation, on-site service, maintenance, and red team tactical support. The Field Operations Team will also provide on-site tactical surveys, training for rapid deployment and surge support for maintenance and system operation.

Liteye has been providing mission-critical equipment to the US Government for over 20 years and AUDS has been proven on the battlefield with over 1000 defeats of enemy drones, protecting airfields, government installations and critical infrastructure across the US Government.

Kenneth Geyer, CEO and Co-Founder of Liteye Systems, commented: “Our team has combat support experience and has seen enemy tactics and techniques first-hand. They know the intricacies of AUDS, electronic warfare and the combined arms approach to fighting this threat. I place tremendous value in having this team as part of Liteye.”

Zac Neumayr, VP of Strategic Accounts and Field Operations Division at Liteye Systems, said: “As Liteye systems continue to be deployed down range, we felt it essential to establish a division that is focused solely on meeting the needs of the system operators. In addition to routine maintenance and repair, our talented group of former downrange operators and Field Service Representatives (FSRs) will ensure that our system operators are effectively trained and informed of technology advancements allowing them to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving threats. This is a significant investment by Liteye to ensure that these complex, highly capable, multi-mission systems are fully utilized and maintained to support the missions for years to come.”

A senior Field Operations Manager at Liteye stated: “We have a robust training program to certify our FSRs and we are the only ones that can provide that service. We also have the clearances and certifications to travel anywhere our system is deployed. We’re dedicated to ensuring our customers can perform their mission.”
