Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT), based in Bozeman, Montana, has announced the latest version of its eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS).
X-MADIS, AVT said, offers next-generation portable counter sUAS capabilities, with this newest version incorporating several new hardware components.
These additions have improved the system’s ruggedness and on-the-move accuracy in rough terrain, as well as its power distribution and setup and deployment time.
The system combines radar with a radio frequency detection sensor for the detection, classification and locating of commercial sUAS.
Customers also now have a choice of multiple electronic warfare systems to defeat sUAS and drone swarms.
These include two gyro-stablised optics: the CM262 4-configuration 26lb payload and the CM202U 12lb payload.
“Our top priority is keeping our customers better protected against the threat, which is why we continually deliver upgrades to the X-MADIS system,” said Lee Dingman, AVT president.
“This latest X-MADIS version is the result of three years of development, testing and integration of new and improved features and components.
“Our Counter UAS team is responsive to our customers’ demands, and we constantly evaluate the future threat to keep our customers ahead of their enemies.”
