L-3 WESCAM to Demonstrate the Electro-Optical and Infrared Imaging Capabilities of Three Different System Models at the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow

FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 14, 2014 – L-3 WESCAM announced today that it will be providing a series of live product demonstrations of its MX™-10, MX™-15 and MX™-25 electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) imaging systems at the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow. The demonstrations will take place July 14–18 and will showcase a wide range of advanced sensor capabilities in support of military, homeland security and airborne law enforcement agency ISR missions.

“The MX-25 was engineered to support customers requiring very long-range imaging performance where positive identification is paramount,” said Paul Jennison, vice president of government sales and business development for L-3 WESCAM. “We’re seeing growing interest in this capability worldwide and are especially pleased to showcase the system at Farnborough, which marks the first time it will be demonstrated outside of North America.”

The multi-spectral, multi-sensor MX-15 system will include a color low-light, wide-angle zoom EO imager and a zoom spotter – two significant technologies that were released in May 2014. Similarly, the MX-25 system will be equipped with a dual-channel daylight and EMCCD low-light spotter.

In addition to system demonstrations, L-3 WESCAM turrets will be showcased on various key platforms at the Farnborough International Airshow. Some of the platforms include an MX-10 on a Shadow UAV – Textron Unmanned Systems, an MX-15 on a Scorpion Jet – Textron Airland Systems, an MX-15D on an AT-6 – Textron Cessna/Beech, and an MX-20HD on a P-8A – United States Navy.
