Airbus Helicopters Selects L-3 WESCAM Products from its MXTM-Series Line of Electro-Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) Systems

L-3 WESCAM announced that products from its MXTM-Series line of electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) systems have been selected by Airbus Helicopters as the targeting systems of choice for the company's Generic Weapon Systems (GWS) program. L-3's MXTM-10D and MXTM-15D will be key components of the modernized system package offerings configured to support anti-submarine warfare, tactical troop transport, search-and- rescue, medical evacuation and special operations from Airbus' H225M and H145M helicopters. L-3 WESCAM's combat-proven targeting systems provide powerful operational capabilities and are configured with high-sensitivity multi-spectral sensors for day, low-light and nighttime missions. Over 530 MX targeting systems have been delivered since L-3 WESCAM's debut into the targeting market in 2005. These systems are operational on more than 40 different airborne platforms and continue to support militaries and government agencies across 15 countries.

L-3 WESCAM Launches High-Definition Color Spotter Sensor for Its MX-10 Electro-Optical/Infrared Imaging System

L-3 WESCAM announced the launch of a high-definition (HD) color spotter sensor for its MX-10 electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) imaging system. This additional capability has enabled L-3 WESCAM to be the first to market with a 10- inch stabilized turret complete with EO wide, EO narrow and daylight spotter camera offerings. L-3 WESCAM recently received its first order for an MX-10 with the HD color spotter from the Stanislaus County Sheriff Department, which operates a Cessna 206 fixed-wing aircraft out of its Modesto, Calif. headquarters. Footage captured from the MX-10 spotter will be on display in L-3's exhibit, Booth 600, at the 2015 Missions Summit Solution, which runs March 29 to 31 in Nashville, Tenn. The MX-10 spotter is ideal for smaller UAV and airborne law enforcement mission profiles that are subject to operate with minimal Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) requirements. The spotter and all other sensor offerings within the MX-10 system are fully compatible with L-3 WESCAM's KineticTM technologies, a suite of powerful situational awareness and target detection capabilities. The suite includes KineticTM ISR - a map-based sensor management package, KineticTM MTI - a Moving Target Indicator tool, and KineticTM Speed - a tool that indicates the speed at which a point of interest is moving on the ground or in the water.

L-3 WESCAM Launches New Performance Features for MX -Series Electro-Optical/Infrared Surveillance and Targeting Systems

L-3 WESCAM announced significant feature enhancements to the electro-optical and infrared surveillance and targeting products within its MX -Series portfolio. Feature enhancements per product are MX-15 Surveillance System, Color low-light, wide-angle zoom EO imager - Complementing the system's existing dual-channel spotter, this technology enhances its imaging capability under a wide range of illumination conditions, including dusk and poor weather conditions. Zoom Spotter - Zoom optics allow the operator to achieve the desired balance of magnification and field of view between moderately wide and ultra-narrow. Shortwave IR imager - Useful for day and night imaging missions, the high-resolution SWIR imager offers outstanding range performance at the limits of atmospheric visibility. In addition, it offers improved imaging performance under suboptimal atmospheric conditions, such as atmospheric haze and fog. MX-20D & 25D Targeting Systems, Laser Spot Tracker - Compatible with standard U.S. and NATO designator codes, the LST automatically detects a designator spot of a given code in its field of view and automatically slews the system's line of sight to the laser energy. MX-25 Surveillance & MX-25D Targeting Systems Dual-channel daylight and EMCCD low-light EO wide-angle zoom - EMCCD low-light imaging capability added to the wide-angle zoom sensor enhances situational awareness under a wide range of illumination conditions. To improve mission capability and promote operational ease-of-use, all turrets within the MX-Series can also be equipped with L-3 WESCAM's newly launched Kinetic technologies: Kinetic Speed - A powerful feature that enables operators to gain an accurate indication of the speed at which ground vehicles are travelling. This is useful for threat assessment and/or regulatory law enforcement. Kinetic Map - An advanced operator control system that overlays the location of the sensor, direction of line of sight and a selected sensor's field of view onto a geographical moving map. The system displays multiple channels of sensor video, along with the imagery's associated metadata. Kinetic Moving Target Indicator - Detects multiple moving targets in an image stream, significantly reducing operator burden and increasing the probability of detecting suspicious activity. Kinetic Map and MTI - Combines the capabilities of the Kinetic Map and Kinetic MTI into a powerful, integrated set of operator capabilities. All system features are available now for delivery.
