BELGRADE, Mont. As the need to continue to adapt to the growing threat posed by small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS), Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) has released the latest variant of the eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS), designed to offer next-generation portable, on-the-move counter sUAS capabilities.

According to the company, the newest version of the X-MADIS incorporates several new hardware components for enhanced ruggedness and on-the-move accuracy in rough terrain. It also aims to offer improved power distribution and simpler setup and deployment.

The company also claims that to ensure no threat goes undetected, the X-MADIS combines radar with a radio frequency (RF) detection sensor for reliable detection, classification and locating of commercial sUAS.

Two gyro-stabilized optics are available for integration, both enhanced with smart features, artificial intelligence, and machine learning capabilities intended for improved situational awareness. The system is also designed so that operators can rapidly detect, locate, and defeat an sUAS or drone swarm using the touchscreen interface.
