L3 WESCAM showcases solutions for Canada’s defence programs at CANSEC 2019

Trade Shows & Events

Canada’s L3 WESCAM along with its parent, L3 Technologies, is proud to announce its Diamond-level sponsorship for CANSEC – Canada’s Global Defence and Security Trade Show – which will be held on May 29-30, 2019 at the EY Centre in Ottawa, Ontario. Held annually by the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI), CANSEC  will provide L3 Technologies an opportunity to showcase leading-edge technology, products and services developed for land-based, naval, aerospace and joint forces military units.

This two-day event is the largest and most important defence industry event in Canada as it brings Government (Federal Cabinet Ministers, Members of Parliament, Senators), military, industry, international delegations and international media together in one venue.

CANSEC is a signature event for Burlington, Ontario based L3 WESCAM which designs and manufactures industry-leading multi-spectral and multi-sensor electro optic infrared (EO/IR) imaging and targeting sensor systems, and fully integrated mission systems for air, land and sea domains. WESCAM’s systems can be found on hundreds of different types of platforms including fixed-wing, rotary-wing, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and aerostat airborne platforms, surface vehicles and various marine-based platforms.

WESCAM recently secured the largest contract in the company’s history.  Valued at $454 million, the 5-year ID/IQ contract will modernize the U.S. Army’s fleet of Shadow RQ-7B UAVs with the WESCAM MX-10D EO/IR and lasing sensor system.

A key partnership to note during CANSEC will be Canada’s Combat Ship Team which has formed to deliver the Royal Canadian Navy’s Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) ships. L3 Technologies is a key member of this team and will deliver the Integrated Platform Management System, Integrated Communication Systems, EO/IR sensors via L3 WESCAM, weapons stowage and torpedo handling systems and helicopter hangar doors.

WESCAM also provides High Definition imaging systems in support of the Royal Canadian Air Force Interoperable Griffon Reconnaissance Escort Surveillance System (INGRESS) Project.  Some of these aircraft are currently deployed in theatre as part of Canada’s contribution to the UN mission in Mali, and for Operation IMPACT in Iraq.

Looking ahead, WESCAM’s MX-15 HD EO/IR sensor will feature prominently on Canada’s new CC-295 Fixed Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) aircraft which will roll off the production line in 2019.
