Textron Systems Demonstrates Advanced Capabilities with Its Proven UAS Family and L-3 WESCAM’s MX™-Series Payloads

What do you get when you bring together some of the most trusted and reliable unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) with state-of-the-art airborne imaging systems? A match made “in the heavens!”

Textron Systems has integrated L-3 WESCAM’s MX™ payloads onto its proven family of Shadow® Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems, which has delivered more than a million total flight hours for customers around the world.

L-3 WESCAM’s MX payloads are utilized primarily for airborne surveillance and reconnaissance, a great fit for Textron Systems’ Shadow® 200 and next-generation Shadow M2 Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems. The payloads provide sharp, detailed electro-optical/infrared imaging for day and night requirements, and deliver high-definition video to support common mission sets, such as target acquisition capabilities, battle damage assessment and overall battle management.

“Our customers rely on us to make our UASs as capable as possible, for as many mission profiles as possible,” says Senior Vice President and General Manager Bill Irby. “We are continuously on the lookout for highly capable payloads and sensors to meet our customers’ requirements. Our work with L-3 WESCAM is a great example of this industry collaboration.”

Textron Systems and L-3 WESCAM will both be at AUSA this week! Visit Textron Systems at AUSA, Booth 6515, or L-3 WESCAM, Booth 2324.
