CACI International Inc has acquired Ascent Vision Technologies, LLC (AVT), a provider of technology and solutions that support multi-domain intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), unmanned aircraft system (UAS), air defense, and counter-unmanned aircraft system (c-UAS) operations.
AVT provides low size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) electro-optical, infrared (EO/IR) imaging systems designed for airborne, ground, and maritime platforms. This proprietary imaging technology is utilized in AVT’s X-MADIS system, an on-the-move, mobile and fixed site, c-UAS solution designed to detect, locate, track, identify, and defeat UAS threats. X-MADIS integrates radar, AVT’s gyro-stabilized optical sensors, and non-kinetic electronic warfare capabilities to combat the threat of hostile UAS and near-peer airborne threats. X-MADIS can also provide ground and surface surveillance, counter-IED, hostile fire location, and integrated kinetic capabilities.
AVT adds to CACI’s U.S. Army and Navy presence with the U.S. Air Force and Marine Corps, as well as international customers.
