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.
