Counter drone supplier Ascent Vision Technologies has completed the latest phase of its eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS) field testing with the US Air Force according to a report published in sUAS news. Another phase of testing will take place in late November to further refine the specific mission parameters. AVT is supplying multiple counter UAS systems (CUAS) to the US Air Force under a USD23 million contract awarded in mid-2019 after months of testing, trials and evaluation across multiple military services and operational spectrums. The first X-MADIS system is scheduled to be delivered to the Air Force in December. The mission of the X-MADIS is to detect, locate, track, identify and defeat sUAS by combining the capabilities of radar, optics, radio frequency detection and electronic command and control mitigation of the aircraft. It operates as part of a static or mobile system.
