L-3 Wescam wins MC-10 order
L-3 Wescam has announced that it has received an order from Abu Dhabi Autonomous Systems Investments (ADASI) for eight MX-10 electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) imaging systems. According to a company statement issued 14 November 2011, the turrets will be used to conduct surveillance duties from the S-100 Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) platform.
Paul Jennison, vice president of government sales and business development for L-3 Wescam commented on the contract win, saying: “ADASI flight tests with the MX-10 earlier this year were very successful in showcasing both the superior surveillance capabilities and nominal installation and integration requirements of our sensor systems.”
This is the second order of eight units L-3 Wescam has received by a Middle Eastern company
in 2011. Deliveries will begin in December 2011 and will be completed by March 2012.
