L3 Wescam enters the MatriX
L3 Wescam has introduced a new range of MatriX intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) system kits for fixed-and rotary-wing platforms, the company announced on 16 May.
The MatriX kits combine commercial off-the-shelf technologies to provide advanced ISR capabilities for airborne platforms.
Each MatriX kit includes an MX series imaging or targeting turret, configured for ISR missions, in addition to a removable console in a compact walk on/walk off, or larger, palletised roll-on/roll-off orientation.
Mike Greenley, president of L3 Wescam, said: ‘By integrating fundamental technologies into a streamlined kit, our MatriX solutions can be used to easily convert platforms such as the UH-60 utility Black Hawk and C-130 cargo carrier for ISR missions and then revert them to their original configurations in just a few hours.'
