L-3 WESCAM is the industry leader in capturing stabilized; high-magnification images from moving platforms, and transmitting video and data in real-time to fixed and mobile receive locations for immediate interpretation. Ideal from low-altitude tactical missions to long-range covert surveillance missions, WESCAM provides unparalleled image stability and long-range detection capability from fixed-wing, rotary-wing, UAV and aerostat platforms for military and government agencies around the globe.

Meeting the most diverse and demanding imaging needs for intelligence, surveillance, targeting and reconnaissance type missions, WESCAM’s systems are designed, qualified, and mission-proven in severe conditions ranging from the hot, harsh environment in Iraq to frigid maritime patrol duties in Alaska.

Robust R&D investments put WESCAM at the forefront of the imaging market.

In 2006 WESCAM customers experienced new performance features which lead to 25% lighter systems, 24/7 EO imaging, 20% improvement in IR range and an expanded ease of use control suite – MX-GEO™ Gen. 3. Current MX-product line updates include the addition of the MX-15 True HD (1080p) imaging turret. Providing higher resolution and enhanced imaging performance, this technology is augmented by Enhanced Local Area Processing (ELAP) technology. ELAP enables increased standoff range, improved feature recognition and maximum haze penetration for long-range surveillance missions.

WESCAM’s MX-Series™ is the industry’s only modular family of turreted EO/IR/Laser surveillance and targeting systems. The family includes the MX-15, MX-15 True HD, MX-15D and the MX-20. Spanning a broad range of sizes and capabilities, the MX-Series delivers the longest stand-off range capability in each turret size class through High Stabilization: Achieving rock-solid images in high vibrational environments through the use of IMU-Inside technology.
Accurate GEO-Location: Fully utilizing IMU-Inside technology, the MX-Series incorporates MX-GEO. This enables each turret to automatically point, focus, locate, target and track with unparalleled accuracy. Maximum Magnification: Utilizing custom-designed long focal lengths and large aperture lenses.

By integrating an MX-Series Turrets with WISARD™, a breakthrough series of digital and analog transmission and reception equipment, including the MX-Pod, WISARD HandHeld, and WISARD AzTrack, WESCAM provides a complete air-to-ground solutions – providing personnel with real-time situational awareness to support operational decision-making.
