L-3 WESCAM Launches MX™-GCS Independent Stabilized Sighting System at AUSA 2015
Oct 12 15
L-3 WESCAM announced the launch of its MXTM-GCS electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) independent stabilized sighting system for land combat vehicles. The MX-GCS is a highly versatile above-armor gunner or commander sight that provides on-the-move target identification, tracking and firing capabilities. The MX-GCS will be on display in L-3's exhibit in Booth 6828 (Hall D) at the 2015 AUSA Annual Meeting & Exposition to be held October 12-14. The MX-GCS can be scaled through a modular payload approach that suits varying platform requirements and program budgets. Configured with a selection of high-performing sensors for optimal visibility during day and nighttime missions, the MX-GCS includes a midwave large-format IR imager, a high-definition daylight color TV and an eyesafe laser rangefinder. In addition, the MX-GCS can support both laser designator and shortwave IR (SWIR) imagers to meet evolving threats. Together with its long-range on-the-move sighting and firing capacity, the system offers 360-degree scanning capability independent of the gun turret axis. The MX-GCS interfaces to a dual-channel gun resolver and is qualified to U.S. military standards for environmental and electromagnetic compliance.
