TXTL Ascent Vision Technologies has secured a contract with Thailand’s Defence Technology Institute (DTI) for its eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS), intended to protect critical assets against hostile small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS).
The X-MADIS was selected following a series of counter-sUAS (C-sUAS) demonstrations and tests. Developed to achieve optimal performance in hot and humid conditions, X-MADIS will provide reliable, fixed-site and full spectrum protection against commercial, off-the-shelf sUAS and state level adversaries.
X-MADIS is a portable solution, incorporating industry-leading components designed specifically for detection, tracking, identification, classification and defeat of sUAS and drone swarms. It is tailored to each customer’s mission through advanced system integration, providing customers with a selection of components to meet specific needs.
The DTI’s X-MADIS FS (fixed site) installation combines four all-threat air surveillance radars with an RF detection sensor for reliable detection, classification and location of commercial sUAS. A CM202U optic delivers rapid positive identification and tracking of airborne objects to increase operator decision time in responding to a threat. An EW system neutralizes one or multiple sUAS. All components are integrated into the company’s CUAS Suite software to enable seamless, single operation of the entire kill-chain.
“[…] the Defence Technology Institute has recognized the X-MADIS as a powerful solution to protect their assets against sUAS threats,” commented Stephen Zinda, VP of International Business Development. “The award was granted following a series of test events to demonstrate the suitability of the X-MADIS for this specific operation. […] We look forward to continuing a strong relationship with both GCS Group and the DTI as we support their needs.”
Established in 2004, GCS Group Corporation is a Thai company that designs, manufactures and trades high-level technology for the defence industry.
