This exclusive imaging technology is used in AVT’s X-MADIS system, which is a counter unmanned aircraft system solution to defeat, identify, track, locate, and detect UAS threats, claim sources.

The customers will reportedly get continued differentiation by combining CACI’s signal intelligence, CORIAN, and electronic warfare capabilities with AVT’s X-MADIS and EO/IR technologies.

London, Executive Chairman & Chairman of Board at CACI International was reported saying that the company has an exceptional track record of acquisitions that have proved beneficial for their employees and customers, offering long-term profit to their shareholders.
