Areté Builds Products of the

Highest Quality

Areté specializes in reliably providing low size, weight, power, and cost (low-SWaP-C) sensing solutions for government and commercial customers. Our solutions include stand-alone software and hardware as well as fully integrated systems. In addition to finished products, we routinely have mature prototypes available for testing as a result of our rapid prototyping efforts. Arete features 220K square feet of lab, office, and production capacity and our QMS is AS9100 and ISO-9001 certified.


Areté’s AIRTRAC line of laser products offer a wide range of solutions, including lasers for designators, LIDAR, UV lasers, and custom configurations. AIRTRAC lasers lead the industry with their compact size, lightweight design, low power consumption, and cost-effectiveness. Additionally, they can be customized to meet the specific requirements of various missions.


Areté’s LIDARs offer a diverse range of solutions, spanning from heliborne situational awareness to maritime surveillance and mapping. Areté’s Lidar for Situational Awareness (LiSA) provides pilots with superior navigation and tactical insight, enabling them to identify hazards, wires, obstacles, flight paths, and landing zones in all weather conditions, particularly in Degraded Visual Environments (DVE). Areté’s Pushbroom Imaging LIDAR for Littoral Surveillance (PILLS) is a LIDAR system mounted on Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), capable of conducting hydrographic surveys and detection missions effectively.

Counter UAS

Areté’s Counter UAS solutions prioritize low size, weight, and power while ensuring high-confidence detections and tracks with extremely low false alarm rates. BASILISK™ is modular, passive, camera based unmanned air systems (UAS) and UAS swarm detection and tracking system.


Areté’s Force Protection products increase situational awareness for the end-user and offer remote sensing capabilities. TANDOM™ is a Tactical ANalytic Decision Optimization Module that provides real-time sensor fusion capability in any situation requiring immediate integration of multiple sensors and sensor modalities (chemical, radiological, biological, video, environmental, etc.).


Areté’s Floating Sensors provide low Size, Weight, Power, and Cost modular sensor platforms for ocean surveillance, monitoring, or environmental measurements. STRIDR® is a small, low-cost Lagrangian drifter that provides remote sensing capabilities via internal or modular sensors.


Areté's software solutions demonstrate our capabilities in machine learning and artificial intelligence. Our software products can identify weak signals in high clutter environments and accurately detect and track with low false alarm rates. ALLSEEN is The Areté Learned Likelihood Statistical Error Estimation Network, it is a fast, retrainable, and scalable automatic target recognition (ATR).
