Ascent Vision Technologies (Booth B67) is showcasing this week at Singapore 2020 its just-launched next-generation multi-mission imaging system for maritime counter-UAS (CUAS) and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. Dubbed CM262M, the compact, portable, multi-mission optic system includes full high-definition video, four-sensor configuration, and a higher-power video processor. An IP67 rating ensures performance reliability in harsh sea conditions.

When integrated into Ascent Vision's eXpeditionary Mobile Air Defense Integrated System (X-MADIS), the CM262M improves detection, identification, and tracking capabilities of small UASs to help combat drones at sea. The optic system provides automated slew to hone in on a detected object, facilitating interpretation and identification.

“A superior optic is a vital component of an effective counter-UAS system as it provides necessary information on the characteristics of the sUAS to the operator, allowing for positive identification,” said Ascent Vision president Lee Dingman. “Once correctly identified, the appropriate action can be taken against the airborne system.”
