Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) has secured a contract for its eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defence Integrated System (X-MADIS) C-UAS from the Defence Technology Institute (DTI) of Thailand.

It was selected following a series of C-sUAS demonstrations and tests, which demonstrated the system’s capabilities and performance in very hot and humid conditions.

The portable X-MADIS is specifically designed for detection, tracking, identification, classification and defeat of sUAS, individually and in swarms.

Stephen Zinda, VP of International Business Development at AVT, said: ‘We are grateful that the DTI has recognised the X-MADIS as a powerful solution to protect their assets against sUAS threats… The award was granted following a series of test events to demonstrate the suitability of the X-MADIS for this specific operation.’

DTI’s fixed site X-MADIS uses four all-threat air surveillance radars with an RF detection sensor. Its CM202U optics deliver fast positive identification and tracking functions.
