Numerica’s MIMIR advances C-UAS capabilities
Wednesday July 29, 2020
FORT COLLINS -- Numerica Corporation’s newest commercial software product, MIMIR, is helping to defend against malicious drone activity by enabling the creation of layered Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS) capabilities using autonomous sensor fusion and precise target tracking technology.
With the MIMIR software suite, users can seamlessly operate multiple sensors and defeat technologies through an integrated user interface, enabling a faster and more effective response to threats, Numerica said.
“We are happy to finally put a name on a capability we’ve been developing and deploying for some time now,” said Nate Knight, Numerica VP of Air and Missile Defense.
“Pairing our data fusion and tracking technology with a focused visual interface allows our users to go beyond simply connecting to multiple devices to instead achieve a deep integration of sensors and defeat capabilities as the situation demands.”
Over the last two years, Numerica and Liteye Systems, Inc. have leveraged MIMIR to demonstrate the rapid integration of many new sensors and defenses into Liteye’s Counter UAS Defense Solutions to offer an advanced layered C-UAS capability.
Integrations have included high power microwave and 30 mm air burst kinetic defeat systems, signal detection and classification sensors, and incorporation with external C2 such as the U.S. Army’s FAAD-C2.
MIMIR has been integrated into all of Liteye’s commercial C-UAS offerings and is the software driving Liteye’s Containerized Anti-UAS Defeat System (C-AUDS), which are deployed worldwide in support of urgent C-UAS requirements.
“The successful integration of MIMIR and Liteye’s C-UAS solutions expands our ability to support the growing threat in all markets, including DoD, DoE, DHS and Commercial,” said Kenneth Geyer, CEO of Liteye Systems.
“It’s an honor to be Numerica’s exclusive partner in deploying the MIMIR software suite as part of the next generation of critical infrastructure protection solutions.”
As emerging requirements arise for C-UAS solutions, Numerica said it is continuing to integrate new technologies into the MIMIR suite with a current focus on distributed system-of-systems capabilities and increased autonomy.
