A Modular Package for the C-130 Hercules Platform
WESCAM’s MatriX™ ISR solution for the C-130 is a combination of best-in-class Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technologies working together to expand the mission capabilities of the Hercules platform. The MatriX ISR solution for the C-130 transforms a proven cargo platform into one with full ISR capabilities – without impinging on traditional mission roles.
Adding ISR Capability to the C-130
The C-130 MatriX ISR solution includes an MX™-Series surveillance or designating turret. Configured for ISR operations, the turret is equipped with multi-spectral imaging capabilities, ensuring 24/7 visibility – and operates with a high-accuracy pointing capability with its on-gimbal navigational grade IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit.) Additionally, its fully-stabilized sensor suite enables effective, long standoff operation.
C-130 Mission Console
The C-130’s roll-on/roll/off palletized two operator console workstation is configured with a mission computer featuring sensor management, automation and video analytic software. Additional components include a stores management system, moving-map, monitors, recorders, seating and a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) with hand controllers and joysticks.
