L3 Wescam details new MX orders

2nd June 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


L3 Wescam has racked up a number of new orders for its MX-series of electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) systems within the Canadian market, the company announced on 31 May.

The company has received orders from a number of Canadian police forces during 2017. Under these orders L-3 will supply the MX-10 to the Ottawa Police Service for its Cessna 206 aircraft, to the Winnipeg Police Service for its EC120 helicopter, and the Edmonton Police Service for its AS350 helicopter.

Newly detailed orders also include a contract from PAL Aerospace for the MX-15 airborne sensor for its Bombardier DHC-8 multi-role surveillance aircraft. The sensor will support the aircraft’s maritime surveillance, fisheries patrol, environmental protection, search and rescue, and overland surveillance missions.

The MX-15 system will be configured with a high-definition thermal imager, an HD colour low-light imager, a dual-channel spotter and a wide-angle laser illuminator.

Mike Greenley, president of L3 Wescam, said: ‘For more than four decades, L3 Wescam’s EO/IR technology has provided the vital, real-time imaging intelligence that customers require for the detection, deterrence and control of illegal or hostile activity from both tactical and long-range standoff ranges.

‘Our technologies continue to transition air, land and maritime platforms into modernized variants with extraordinary visual capability, making them ideal for evolving mission portfolios across all segments of the defence and security marketplace.’
