Ascent Vision Technologies seals deal on CUAS contract with defense agency


Ascent Vision Technologies has received a contract from the Defence Technology Institute (DTI) of Thailand for its field-proven eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS).

The X-MADIS will protect critical assets against hostile small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS).

The X-MADIS was selected by the DTI following a series of Counter small Unmanned Aerial System (C-sUAS) demonstrations and tests to showcase the capabilities of the system.

Developed to achieve optimal performance in high-heat and humid conditions, the X-MADIS will provide reliable, fixed-site and full-spectrum protection against commercial, off-the-shelf sUAS and state-level adversaries.

AVT’s X-MADIS is a portable solution that incorporates industry-leading components designed specifically for detection, tracking, identification, classification and defeat of sUAS and drone swarms.

Stephen Zinda, vice president of International Business Development at AVT, said: “We are grateful that the Defence Technology Institute has recognized the X-MADIS as a powerful solution to protect their assets against sUAS threats.”

Adding: “The award was granted following a series of test events to demonstrate the suitability of the X-MADIS for this specific operation.

“I would like to thank our partners, GCS Group Corporation, for their support and effort in helping us secure the contract. We look forward to continuing a strong relationship with both GCS Group and the DTI as we support their needs.”
