Ascent Vision reports delivery of mobile counter UAS systems to US military

Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) reports delivery of several units of its eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS) to a non-disclosed US DoD customer. The delivery, part of a major contract award, included the latest variant of the X-MADIS, which incorporates cutting-edge technology innovations for improved portable, on-the-move capabilities in combating small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS).

To provide forces with greater protection against hostile sUAS, the latest variant of the X-MADIS offers situational awareness by combining radar with a Radio Frequency (RF) detection sensor. Multiple detection methods aim to detect all sUAS threats, while offering reliable detection, classification and location of one or multiple sUAS simultaneously. The rugged Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) imaging system delivers identification of sUAS in all light conditions. With high zoom capabilities, the system provides long range sUAS identification at day and night. With a powerful Electronic Warfare (EW) system for neutralization, the X-MADIS offers a portable, full-spectrum solution for combating sUAS and drone swarms. Other enhancements include improved power distribution, simpler setup and deployment features and new hardware components for reliable Counter UAS on-the-move in rough terrain. All components are integrated into AVT’s latest CUAS Suite software for seamless command and control of the entire kill-chain, says Ascent.

Prior to delivery of the first units to the customer, AVT conducted a series of field tests tailored to the customer’s specific operational needs. The final phase of field testing, which focused on optimizing the X-MADIS for integration into the customer’s selected platforms, was completed in late 2019.
