June 09, 2020
BELGRADE, Mont. Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) has won over $16 million in contracts by a non-disclosed U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) customer to deliver its innovative 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 are designed to provide advanced intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and counter-small unmanned aerial systems (C-sUAS) capabilities to combat forces.
The CM262 system is a full-high definition (HD) optic, combining four sensor configurations, a next-generation video processor and 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, intended to enable operators to achieve accurate target detection, recognition, and identification day and night.
The CM202U, originally designed for portable C-UAS missions, is a 12-pound optic that aiming to offer reliable 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 powerful solution for ISR and C-sUAS.
