Here at ASUS, we are proud to provide the integral services that truly empower our nation’s military communities, from the ground up – literally.  With our smart infrastructure systems, we create and maintain the efficiencies that allow installations across the country to focus on their own true mission.  Ours is simple: to continue building upon their strength as effectively as possible.

We achieve this goal by always putting our fundamental ideals into practice.  First, we concentrate on maximizing the effective use of natural resources while minimizing our impact on the environment.  Whether that means identifying and reducing costs or engineering innovative solutions to site-specific problems, we are constantly committed to this high standard of efficiency.  Second, we ensure every installation itself is operating as effectively as possible, utilizing real-time system analyses and encouraging open communication between operations.

Finally, we pay special attention to the ultimate measure of success: our customer’s peace of mind.  With our own team’s deeply-rooted military background, we have an intimate understanding of what it takes to make an installation thrive, and we take pride in delivering unparalleled care in this regard.  From community initiatives to infrastructure construction programs, we actively foster the health and growth of each and every base we serve.

LAS is adaptable to COMINT / SIGINT payloads and communications relays and can carry Electro-Optic and IR payloads for very long term surveillance of logistics sites, camps and other facilities. Customers’ include the Army, USAF, Lockheed Martin Corporation and Sandia National Laboratory. In 2011 / 12 CUV delivered the Small Tactical Multi-Payload Aerostat System (STMPAS), which were deployed to Afghanistan. STMPAS provides Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) capability for small tactical units in Afghanistan and other locations. Non-military applications include law enforcement, border security and research.

Recent additional projects in the small UAS arena include a unique Counter UAS system, the EXCIPIO UAS Interception System being developed jointly by Carolina Unmanned Vehicles and Theiss UAV Solutions. The EXCIPIO (“I capture” in Latin) is a small UAS that can intercept a threat UAS, and employ a rapidly ejected net to ensnare the threat UAS, entangling the rotors or propellers. Excipio offers a true “surgical” precision required to intercept and neutralize a UAS threat, regardless of electronic shielding, type, or size of airframe. It is completely effective against UAS with fully autonomous navigation and control systems. EXCIPIO can be a standalone interception and defeat system or be used in conjunction with other detection systems.

Enterprise Holdings, Inc.
Primary Contact: Ms. Michelle Mims-Smith
Primary Phone: 910.798.2407
Long Business Description:

It all started with seven cars and a hunch

One man’s vision is how the Enterprise story begins. Back in 1957, a decorated WWII Hellcat pilot returned home after serving over the skies of the South Pacific. This man, a true innovator named Jack Taylor, had a steadfast dedication to his country, his family and the dream of starting a business.

Utilizing lessons learned in the Navy—including the value of hard work, team spirit and simply doing the right thing—Jack embraced the novel concept of leasing automobiles, with a fleet of seven cars.

Enterprise is now a household name for frequent travelers, road trippers and those with a car in the shop. We’re a brand that’s recognized as a worldwide leader in the car rental industry. We value our employees and customers as much as a member of the family. Today Enterprise continues to drive success through a simple, yet powerful set of beliefs to become a leader in car rental, as well as in sustainability and innovation.
