LITEF LCR-110 receives EASA certification
LITEF has received ETSO certification from EASA for its LCR-110 GNSS-aided Inertial Reference System (GIRS).
LITEF is a socially committed company. Our social, ecological and economic responsibility is very important to us, and is the foundation of our actions. We promote and encourage the health and sports activities of our employees. We operate in accordance with a local environmental concept. We support a wide range of social projects as well as the social commitment of our employees. We show commitment to many local schools and higher education institutions.
For us, sustainability means striving towards an interlocking set of social, environmentally sound and economic objectives, each of equal importance. We place sustainable growth above making a rapid financial return. We wish to create enduring values and we work continuously to be careful and sparing with resources and our environment. Sustainability also matters to us as a responsible employer. Indeed, our top priority is to foster, protect and motivate a workforce that enjoys equal opportunity.
We cooperate with the German PRM organisation that trades as Arbeit für Menschen mit Behinderung gGmbH (AfB). The AfB is Germany’s first charitable IT systems business. LITEF donates PCs, monitors and other IT hardware to the AfB. The AfB facilitates workplaces as well as the reintegration of handicapped people into working life.
Based on the motto "Enthusiastic for the Engineering Profession", LITEF is actively involved in the Student Engineer Academy, the SIA. This initiative is intended to awaken the interest of further education students in engineering as an academic discipline and equip them better for it. To accomplish this, LITEF runs a project called "Experiment & Statistics - What Role Does Chance Play?". This question is pursued using a fictitious example and through practical measurement events, under the supervision of engineers from our company.
"The Discoverers of Today are the Inventors of Tomorrow" – another reason why LITEF actively supports young people. At the annual Science Days event, our trainees always present interesting projects. With our financial support for 'Jugend forscht' [Research by a German youth science competition] and our active participation, we can assist with vocational guidance. In cooperation with schools, we conduct regular application training sessions. On Girls‘ Day, LITEF motivates girls for technology.
LITEF is dynamic and agile. This is also illustrated by about a dozen company sports groups whose many and varied activities receive active support from ourselves. As well as popular sports such as football or tennis, many of our employees keep body and soul together by ice-skating, climbing or playing chess. In addition, LITEF meets the majority of costs for the "Koronar" sports group that is also open to external participants. Under the guidance of a certified sports instructor, the group exercises specifically to prevent cardio-vascular disease.
