Airborne Surveillance and Reconnaissance


WESCAM has an airborne portfolio of multi-sensor, multi-spectral systems that are deployed worldwide, at varying ranges, and with overlapping fields-of-view, creating the opportunity for uninterrupted surveillance of borders, forward operating bases, airfields and other vital assets. WESCAM’s imaging and targeting systems can be found on over 100 different types of platforms, including fixed-wing, rotor-wing, UAV and aerostat platforms. Within WESCAM’s product portfolio is a series of systems that encourage ease and familiarity of use, simplified turret interchangeability within fleets, efficiencies in technology enhancements and overall system support. Featuring common electronics and cabling, common user interfaces and video overlays, and common software and internal components, this family is known as WESCAM’s MX™-Series. Because today’s mission requirements demand identification and designation from longer standoff ranges, the MX-Series has been engineered to focus on the three factors that drive Maximum Range: resolution, magnification and stabilization. As a result, each MX-Series turret in its class-size has outperformed its major competitor in every performance area, giving L-3 WESCAM the longest EO/IR target identification and designating ranges in the industry.

Technology Enhancements in 2018 Include:

  • Higher sensitivity sensors to help you see better.
  • Intelligent Processing technologies to help you operate easier.
  • Operator Advisers to help you to analyze with confidence.
