EW Singapore: L3 Wescam details MX orders
L3 Wescam has been awarded a number of contracts to supply its MX-series electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) imaging systems to customers, including the Royal Thai Navy and the Royal Australian Air Force.
The contracts were announced alongside orders from the US Navy, US Air Force Special Operations Command and the US Department of Homeland Security. The total value of all contracts is $90 million.
The MX-10MS EO/IR maritime sensor system will be supplied for the Royal Thai Navy’s Krabi Class offshore patrol vessels under a contract with Viriyakit of Thailand.
The equipment will support missions including surveillance patrols, border control, disaster relief operations and natural resources protection. The MX-10MS was selected following a technical evaluation, with the contract marking L3 Wescam’s first MX sale in Thailand.
Jeff Miller, president of L3’s Integrated Sensor Systems sector, said: ‘This grouping of new orders for L3 Wescam sensors is a direct reflection of our strategy to drive growth by engineering market-leading products and solutions.
‘Our advanced imaging products are delivered to a diverse international customer base in both the defence and the broader security and public safety markets, and we see a robust pipeline of opportunities globally.’
