AVT said the new branding represents their strategic partnership with Ascent Vision Technologies, which formed in 2014 as the two companies worked to deliver best-in-class imaging systems for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; counter UAS; and air defence missions.
The rebranding will help to prevent confusion between the two, with the companies to share a common name and common logo.
"Our new name and logo reflect the progressive future we are establishing for the company. A stronger partnership between the companies will help us deliver the very best solutions to our customers. This is an exciting time for the company, having secured several large defence contracts with US, Australian and allied militaries," CEO of AVT and AVT Australia Tim Sheehy said.
"We are experiencing rapid growth across multiple market sectors and are innovating now more than ever. With numerous projects in the pipeline, we look forward to the year ahead, where we will continue to strengthen our partnerships, innovate and grow our teams in Australia and the United States.”
AVT specialises in high-performance imaging systems for air, ground and maritime domains, and focuses on customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
The company provides ITAR-free imaging systems and integrated solutions optimised for demanding operational environments.
Under the UAV Vision brand, the company supported several defence contracts in Australia and south-east Asia.
