L-3 Wescam introduces MX-RSTA

21st February 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


L3 Wescam has developed a new generation reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition (RSTA) system for ground combat and force protection missions, the company announced on 19 February.

Called the MX-RSTA, the 42lb/19.5kg sighting system can be fixed-mounted to vehicle hulls or hard-mounted to a mast for elevated use to increase stand-off range.

The system has 4-axis stabilisation that provides steady imagery while the vehicle is on the move and removes the visual effects of sway and vibration caused by windy environments.

Vehicle configurations include a commander independent viewer and an above-armour surveillance system.

The MX-RSTA can be configured with up to six imaging and laser sensors. Options include a thermal imager, daylight and low-light continuous zoom cameras, daylight spotter, laser rangefinder and a choice between a narrow or wide laser illuminator. Additional offerings include the company's advanced auto-tracker and embedded GPS receiver.

The system has successfully undergone full qualification testing.

Mike Greenley, president of L3 Wescam, said: 'L3 Wescam remains committed to investing in the solutions our customers require to strengthen their sighting capabilities and mission execution.

'We're continuing to see an increased global demand for our land solutions, as we provide the best imaging performance at an affordable price while incorporating state-of-the art technologies that improve overall mission effectiveness.'
