MatriX™ ISR Systems Solutions Kits
L3 WESCAM combines best-in-class Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technologies to expand the mission capabilities of airborne-, land- and maritime-based platforms – without impacting traditional mission roles. The combination of these technologies has created MatriX™ Systems Solutions. All solutions include an MX™-Series EO/IR imaging or designating turret, configured for ISR missions, in addition to a removable operator console specifically designed and configured to match customer specified mission/technology requirements. MatriX Solutions are a low-cost and low-risk way of incorporating ISR capability into a platform that would normally conduct missions without.
MX-Series EO/IR Systems for MatriX Solutions
WESCAMs airborne imaging and designating systems range in size from 8 to 25 inches in diameter. They provide clean, stabilized, full-motion intel in support of low-altitude tactical surveillance missions, medium-altitude covert ISR, and high-altitude, ultra-long-range missions. Because today’s ISR and designating requirements demand performance from longer standoff ranges, our airborne systems have been engineered to focus on the three factors that drive maximum range: resolution, magnification and stabilization. WESCAM’s land and maritime imaging systems also incorporate the same leading imaging and stabilization technologies that have become synonymous with the MX-Series name.
Removable MatriX Mission Consoles
Whether it’s a compact walk-on/walk-off, or a larger palletized roll-on/roll-off configuration, MatriX consoles can be equipped with a mission computer, featuring a moving map and operator interface, as well as sensor management and automation tools. Also available are video analytic features, such as WESCAM’s Moving Target Indicator (MTI), high-definition (HD) monitors, mission planning tools and a mission recorder. Consoles are fully compatible and easily interface with auxiliary mission equipment.
Proven MatriX Experience
MatriX Solutions have been designed, built and fielded globally in support of various airborne, land and maritime missions. A sample list of airborne solutions includes the CH-146 Griffon helicopter, AS355 helicopter, Mi-17 helicopter, UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter and the C-130 Hercules fixed-wing aircraft.
