X-MADIS – Full Spectrum C-UAS

The eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS) by Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT), a CACI company, is a portable full-spectrum counter-small unmanned aircraft system (C-sUAS) capability that detects, locates, tracks, identifies, and defeats single or multiple sUAS threats. The X-MADIS system provides reliable protection against Group 1, 2, and 3 UAS.

X-MADIS combines radar, a portable electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) optic, and an electronic warfare system to produce a rapid kill chain that can act quickly and decisively against drone hazards and threats. All components are seamlessly integrated using AVT’s CUAS Suite, an innovative, user-friendly command and control (C2) interface. 

X-MADIS is a field-proven capability that provides critical C-UAS capabilities to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and other international U.S. allies. The system can be tailored to meet a customer’s defense and security requirements.
