U.S. Senator Cory Gardner Visits Liteye Systems

Participates In Discussions Concerning  Counter UAS Solutions

Liteye Systems, a Colorado-based Counter Unmanned Aerial Systems (CUAS) manufacturer, hosted U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) at its Centennial Headquarters on Friday, January 17, 2020.

Senator Gardner toured Liteye’s new 55,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility and viewed the capabilities of the US AUDS (Anti-UAV Defense System) that will be produced there.  The Senator was able to view the system that was deployed in the recent Northern Colorado “drone mystery” investigation.

US AUDS is a backbone for Counter UAS solutions, layered with multiple capabilities to Detect, Track, Identify and Defeat malicious threats.  

Discussions centered around growth in Colorado, Drone threats, FAA regulations and National Security:

  • Growth – Liteye expects to expand and employ over 100 Coloradoans in the coming years; and has over $70M in counter drone contracts with the US Government.
  • Drone Threats – During the Northern Colorado “Drone Mystery” Investigation, Liteye answered the call to assist within hours and deployed a system to multiple investigation locations.
  • FAA – Regulations impacting drone usage to mitigate potential threats are still evolving, but regardless, counter UAS systems will be part of the solution, and US AUDS has an industry-leading suite of capabilities ready to employ today.
  • National Security – AUDS has been forward-deployed to several combat zones and proven itself time and again.  Domestically, when authorization is granted, the system can and will provide needed protection for critical infrastructure and military sites.

“I am grateful for Liteye providing a tour of their headquarters in Centennial and our thorough discussion regarding the drone investigation in Eastern Colorado,” said Senator Gardner. “It was a pleasure to learn more about their operation and their mission to protect Americans all over the world.”

“Liteye was honored to host Senator Gardner,” stated Kenneth Geyer, CEO/Co-Owner of Liteye Systems. “The Senator is committed to both Colorado and addressing this new threat; both are a true testament to his service.  Having his support is valuable as we move forward to protect Americans in the U.S. and overseas.”
