Stabilized Gimbal C-UAS & Counter Drone Systems for Unmanned Aerial, Land-Based and Maritime Surveillance

Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) Visit Website

Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) is a leading developer of C-UAS gyro-stabilized imaging systems for ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), target detection and tracking, and counter-UAV operations for aerospace and defense applications.

Our state-of-the-art stabilized gimbal payloads can be integrated into unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS, UAVs, drones, RPAS), UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles) and USVs (unmanned surface vessels), as well as fixed-site installations, and are used to support vital airborne, ground and maritime missions around the world.

Integrated Counter UAV Technology

Our battle-proven integrated systems are designed for air defense, anti drone and counter rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) missions.

Anti-Drone Defense System

X-MADIS Anti-Drone Defense System

Detect, locate, track, identify and defeat sUAS

The X-MADIS (eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System) is a series of fully integrated counter-UAV / anti-drone systems that detect, locate, track, identify and defeat small UAS. Featuring integrated all-threat tactical air surveillance radar, gyro-stabilized optical sensor (EO and MWIR imagery), C2 interface and Electronic Warfare System, the X-MADIS provides a complete “soft-kill” solution to the growing threat of hostile UAS.

The rugged, reliable X-MADIS anti-drone system has been deployed in a range of extreme environments, providing unmatched force protection both on the move and in fixed locations. The platform-agnostic multi-mission system is available in three variants:

X-MADIS FS – Fixed Site Counter Drone System
Designed for fixed-site air defense missions, and mounted on tripods or fixed to permanent installations. The system includes radar, optics and electronic warfare capabilities for protection against drones and sUAS threats.

X-MADIS FS anti-drone technology

X-MADIS Mobile – Portable Protection Against Drones
Offers a rugged and portable counter-UAV solution, ideal for missions that move from one facility to the next. The C-UAS system includes radar, optics and a EW system, and is installed on a vehicle.

X-MADIS Mobile Counter-UAS System

X-MADIS OTM – On-the-Move Anti Drone System
Provides an effective air defense solution for missions on-the-move. The complete C-UAS system includes radar, optics, an EW system and an all-terrain vehicle, and maintains high performance at speeds exceeding 30mph on rough terrain.
