Ascent Vision technologies (AVT) has delivered several units of the eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS) to a non-disclosed US DoD customer, to bring down multiple small drones.
The delivery, part of a major contract award, included the latest, portable variant of the X-MADIS counter unmanned aircraft systems (CUAS).
Number of units delivered and the value of the contract were not revealed by the company.
The X-MADIS offers situational awareness by combining radar with a Radio Frequency (RF) detection sensor. It can locate multiple small UAS (sUAS) threats simultaneously. It comes equipped with an Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) imaging system and high zoom capabilities.
With a powerful Electronic Warfare (EW) system for neutralization, the X-MADIS offers a portable, full-spectrum solution for combating sUAS and drone swarms, the company claims. Other enhancements include improved power distribution, simpler setup and deployment features and new hardware components.
