L3Harris Technologies has been awarded a 5-year, $96 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract to supply WESCAM MX-series sensors and support services to the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).
The contract will see delivery of WESCAM MX-Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) and laser designator sensor suites and services, marking L3Harris’ second airborne sensor program win with the U.S. Army in three years.
L3Harris’ WESCAM MX-10D and WESCAM MX-15D sensor systems will provide multi-spectral imaging and designation capabilities for various aircraft across the U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation Command inventory.
“We’re honored that the U.S. Army has selected our next-generation electro-optics and infrared sensors to support their sensor modernization strategy and we look forward to providing the warfighter this capability that’s ideally suited to their rotary-wing operations,” said Sean Stackley, President, Integrated Mission Systems, L3Harris.
“This is an important step in our long-term investment strategy to improve sensor technologies in support of our Army Aviation customers’ mission success.”
WESCAM MX-Series products have successfully supported U.S. Army aviation programs for more than 20 years in combat operations including current Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions worldwide.
