AVT CM202U counter-UAS system

Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) has entered into an agreement with a United States Department of Defense customer to provide numerous units of the company’s CM262 and CM202U ground-based imaging systems. These advanced multi-mission systems will be used to provide advanced Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Counter-small Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-sUAS) capabilities to combat forces.

The CM262 is a Full HD four-sensor unit that combines next-generation video processing and state-of-the-art stabilization technologies to provide enhanced situational awareness. The compact, man-portable, 26 pound system incorporates HD electro-optical, HD Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) and Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) sensors, as well a laser range finder. It provides highly accurate target detection, recognition and identification both during the day and at night.

The CM202U is a 12-pound optic system, originally designed for portable counter-UAS missions, that provides reliable target detection, recognition and identification with an HD electro-optical sensor and MWIR core. Since its successful introduction, the CM202U has continued to be refined by AVT to offer a powerful solution for ISR and C-sUAS.

Lee Dingman, AVT President, commented: “These contracts are the result of previous successful utilizations by our customers. The CM262 and CM202U imaging systems are providing advanced capabilities to our forces. We are proud that our technology is successfully supporting a wide range of operations.”
