US DoD selects Ascent Vision Technologies’ imaging systems to support drone detection

Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) reports contracts worth over USD16 million from a non-disclosed US DoD customer to deliver its ground-based imaging systems. The contracts were received over the last 60 days and include numerous units of the CM262 four sensor configuration imaging system and several units of the field proven CM202U optic. These multi-mission systems will provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and Counter small Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-sUAS) capabilities to combat forces.

The CM262 was launched two years ago to provide customers with improved situational awareness. The system is a full-High Definition (HD) optic, combining four sensor configurations, a next-generation video processor and cutting-edge stabilization technologies. The CM262 is a compact, man-portable, 26 pound unit that features HD electro-optical, HD Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR), Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) and a laser range finder, designed to support accurate target detection, recognition and identification day and night.

The CM202U, originally designed for portable counter UAS missions, is a 12-pound optic that offers target detection, recognition and identification with a HD electro-optical sensor and MWIR core. Since its introduction to the market three years ago, the CM202U has continued to be refined to offer a solution for ISR and C-sUAS.
