20 February 2019

AVT Australia, formerly known as UAV Vision, is showcasing its expertise in gyro-stabilised imaging systems and solutions for counter-drone operations, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), and air defence as part of the Team Defence Australia display (Stand 07-C04). The company focuses on providing ITAR-free solutions in the Asia-Pacific region.

In addition to a range of low SWaP (size, weight and power) imaging systems, AVT Australia is highlighting its new X-MADIS system, which provides C-UAS (counter unmanned air system) capability for fixed-site, mobile and on-the-move applications.

X-MADIS (eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defence Integrated System) is battle-proven, rugged and reliable and can detect, locate, identify, track and defeat a range of aerial threats, including improvised small UAS swarms. It has long-range detection capability and can engage UASs while on the move over rough terrain at speeds exceeding 40mph. The system combines electro-optics, radar and electronic warfare elements into a platform-agnostic system.
