X-MADIS C-UAS systems delivered to U.S. defense customer

BELGRADE, Mont. Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) completed the delivery of several units of the eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS) to a non-disclosed United States defense customer. The delivery, part of a major contract award, included the latest variant of the X-MADIS, which incorporates technology for portable, on-the-move capabilities in combating small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS).

The latest variant of the X-MADIS offers situational awareness by combining radar with a Radio Frequency (RF) detection sensor. Multiple detection methods aim to ensure no sUAS threat goes undetected, and the rugged Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) imaging system is designed to deliver accurate identification of sUAS in all light conditions.

With an Electronic Warfare (EW) system designed for neutralization, the X-MADIS is intended to offer a portable, full-spectrum solution for combating sUAS and drone swarms. Other enhancements include improved power distribution, simpler setup and deployment features, and new hardware components for reliable counter-UAS (C-UAS) on-the-move in rough terrain. All components are integrated into AVT’s latest CUAS Suite software for command and control of the entire kill-chain.
