Liteye's Counter-UAS Defense System (CUAS) combines electronic-scanning radar target detection, electro-optical (EO) tracking/classification and directional RF inhibition capability.

CUAS is a smart-sensor and effector package capable of remotely detecting small UAS and then tracking and classifying them before providing the option to disrupt their activity. The system may be used in remote or urban areas to prevent UASs being used for terrorist attacks, espionage or other malicious activities against sites with critical infrastructure. CUAS not only works to cover your airspace, but also as a ground surveillance system as well.

All brought together in USA by Liteye Systems, who integrates, installs, and trains operators out of their Colorado facility.

DHS Terror Advisory Warns of Drone, Chemical Weapon Use Outside Combat Zones

The Department of Homeland Security reissued for the seventh time a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin, which makes note of terrorists’ potential to use drones and chemical attacks outside of the groups’ occupied territory and conflict zones.

The NTAS Bulletin replaced in December 2015 the post-9/11 color-coded alert system. The higher levels of advisory in the NTAS system are Elevated Alert or Imminent Alert; neither have been used since the system went into effect.

“We continue to face one of the most challenging threat environments since 9/11, as foreign terrorist organizations exploit the Internet to inspire, enable, or direct individuals already here in the homeland to commit terrorist acts. Homegrown terror suspects increasingly rely on technology, such as end-to-end encrypted social media applications, to avoid detection,” the NTAS Bulletin warns, noting terrorist groups “are urging recruits to adopt easy-to-use tools to target public places and events.”

“Specific attack tactics have included the use of vehicle ramming, to include the use of rental vehicles, small arms, straightedged blades or knives, homemade explosives, and poisons or toxins,” the Bulletin continues. “Some terrorist groups overseas are using battlefield experiences to pursue new technologies and tactics, such as unmanned aerial systems and chemical agents that could be used outside the conflict zones. Many of these technologies are readily available. Additionally, terrorists continue to target commercial aviation and air cargo, including with concealed explosives.”

Drones in the wrong hands are a terror threat to Americans

Drones are being used across the U.S. more and more every year for a growing number of constructive purposes. These include shooting videos for TV news and entertainment programs, filming for movie companies, photographing wedding ceremonies, monitoring crop growth, and supporting search and rescue efforts.

However, drones or other unmanned aerial systems can pose a threat if they are controlled by terrorists, criminals or others who wish to do harm. For example, terrorist groups like ISIS are using them to carry out attacks and conduct reconnaissance overseas.

Here at home, criminals are using drones to smuggle drugs across our borders and surveil law enforcement. The FBI upset a plot to turn drones into weapons to attack the Pentagon and Capitol. The security threat from drones is constantly evolving as the technology becomes even more accessible and affordable across the globe.

Public gatherings are also vulnerable to bad actors who can deploy dangerous unmanned aerial systems. Just last month, two drones rigged with explosives targeted Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro. It simply takes the will and little skill to turn a drone into a deadly device.

We must keep pace with our enemies’ evolving tactics to protect the American people and keep our homeland safe.

How prepared are we to deal with weaponized drones? Simply put, we are not, because our laws are not keeping up with today’s threats. More specifically, our government lacks the necessary legal authorities to close glaring security gaps to counter certain unmanned aerial systems.

Constantly evaluating and adapting our technology and defenses to that of our adversaries is the best way to address new challenges to our national and homeland security. That is why Congress should immediately provide the Trump administration with changes in law it needs to better protect Americans from this very real danger.

Drone Wars Unleashed In Idlib Province?

The current situation in the Syrian province of Idlib continues to alarm.

Although the green buses brought to Idlib hundreds of militants from Aleppo, Deir-Ezzor, Eastern Ghouta, and other areas of the country, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) will be extremely difficult to resist the battle-hardened Assad’s Government army.

In this regard, the radicals are trying to line up the entire population of the Idlib Governorate and take under control all the terror groups inside the province that are now at turf war among themselves. Also, terrorists learn the ropes of intimidation of the enemy trying to inflict damage without contact and entering a battle.

Speaking of the population in the besieged province everything is more or less understandable. The civilians in Idlib do not belong to the militant families are robbed, raped, used as slaves, killed or forced to join terrorists. But as to some quarreling field commanders disagreeing with their policies, Jabhat al-Nusra launched a large-scale war.

Thus, one of the leaders resisting HTS, Khalid al-Wazir, was killed in a drone attack recently. Not even the fact of the elimination, but the way draws attention. Apparently, the al-Nusra militants run in the tactics of the fight using combat UAVs and the experience of the Taliban’s leaders elimination in Afghanistan and Pakistan. However, their indiscriminate attacks against other radicals could be a threat to the suppressed locals.

But the field commanders who are in terror of their life for being opposed to Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, they are not the single purpose. Inside Syria Media Center military sources report that such a tactic has also been actively used against the Syrian Arab army (SAA). Only during last week, the SAA in Idlib province shot down eleven unmanned aerial vehicles launched by radicals. UAV’s were launched from the territory controlled by the jihadists to the position of government troops near the western outskirts of Abu-Dalib, Kafr Zayta in the south of Idlib and Jisr al-Shughur in the southeast

Northrop Grumman explores airburst munitions for C-UAS applications

Northrop Grumman Armament Systems Division (NG-ASD) has outlined ongoing efforts to advance kinetic kill counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) capabilities and develop a family of networked systems to address unmanned air, land, and maritime threats.

Jay Annis, portfolio director at NG-ASD told Jane’s that the company continues to partner with the US Army and US Air Force to develop and field electronic attack and advanced medium-calibre weapons to address unmanned threats.

NG-ASD has integrated the 30 mm Bushmaster M230LF automatic cannon with Liteye’s electronic C-UAS system – developed in partnership with Chess Dynamics and Pratt & Miller – onto a Stryker infantry fighting vehicle to demonstrate how electronic and kinetic attack approaches would work together to neutralise small UAS threats as well as provide increased firepower capability to protect the vehicle and crew from ground threats.

NG-ASD is planning to conduct an end-to-end demonstration of the concept at the US Army’s Maneuver Fires Integrated Experiment (MFIX) exercise at Fort Sill by the end of 2018.

“We are developing the capability to pair our C-UAS systems with kinetic attack capabilities, including our chain guns and ammunition and are currently developing a next-generation proximity fuzed airbursting round for the 30mm M230LF chain gun,” Annis said.

“We are working with the US Army to continue to get these systems qualified for fielding,” he added, while confirming the concept and capability had already been demonstrated externally to customers. “Some of those details remain sensitive but we continue to progress that capability.”

Annis noted that the new ammunition would provide extended range for kinetic attack capabilities of C-UAS systems, with the airburst feature providing increased hit probabilities at longer distances against Group 1 UAS targets.
