L-3 WESCAM MX-Series Electro-optical and Infrared Systems Selected by Airbus Helicopters

L-3 WESCAM announced that products from its MX-Series line of electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) systems have been selected by Airbus Helicopters as the targeting systems of choice for the company’s Generic Weapon Systems (GWS) program.

L-3’s MX-10D and MX-15D will be key components of the modernized system package offerings configured to support anti-submarine warfare, tactical troop transport, search-and rescue, medical evacuation and special operations from Airbus’ H225M and H145M helicopters.

“Our MX systems are commercial-off-the-shelf products designed with superior stabilization,

high-magnification optics and advanced GEO-location technologies,” said Paul Jennison, vice president of government sales and business development for L-3 WESCAM. “We are very proud to supply Airbus Helicopters with targeting solutions that can be delivered on a short timeline, complete with all the technologies required to fulfill varying mission profiles.”

L-3 WESCAM’s combat-proven targeting systems provide powerful operational capabilities and are configured with high-sensitivity multi-spectral sensors for day, low-light and nighttime missions. Over 530 MX targeting systems have been delivered since L-3 WESCAM’s debut into the targeting market in 2005. These systems are operational on more than 40 different airborne platforms and continue to support militaries and government agencies across 15 countries.

    A8V MIND

    Hexagon’s Geosystems presents a portable version of its Accur8vision detection system. A rugged all-in-one solution, the A8V MIND (Mobile Intrusion Detection) is designed to provide flexible protection of critical outdoor infrastructure and objects. Hexagon’s Accur8vision is a volumetric detection system that employs LiDAR technology to safeguard entire areas. Whenever it detects movement in a specified zone, it automatically differentiates a threat from a nonthreat, and immediately notifies security staff if necessary. Person detection is carried out within a radius of 80 meters from this device. Connected remotely via a portable computer device, it enables remote surveillance and does not depend on security staff patrolling the area. 3
