Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) has selected L3Harris Technologies to provide surveillance and targeting systems for the Republic of Korea’s (ROK) new Marine Attack Helicopter.
Under the new agreement, L3Harris will provide KAI with WESCAM MX-15D EO/IR units for its first development helicopters.
The L3Harris WESCAM MX-15D Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) targeting and designating system will provide advanced, battle-tested capabilities for the currently-in-development helicopter, enhancing the ROK’s air-land and marine operations.
The highly configurable WESCAM MX-Series EO/IR sensors integrate seamlessly with the helicopter’s target acquisition and designation sights, enabling increased situational awareness.
“This is the first time L3Harris has participated in the initial stages of a new South Korean research and development plan,” said Kristin Houston, President, Electro Optical, L3Harris. “The L3Harris WESCAM MX-15D EO/IR targeting and designating system will provide enhanced, field-proven capabilities for the new helicopter being designed and built by Korea Aerospace Industries. We are proud to partner with KAI and play a part in the advancement of the RoK Marine Corps Aircraft Group.”
