L-3 WESCAM EO/IR Sensors to Support the U.S Army's Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle
At eight stories high and as long and wide as a football field, the LEMV platform will be equipped with four WESCAM turrets at one time. This advanced configuration will enable both general surveillance and precise targeting missions on four separate geographical locations simultaneously from a sustained altitude of 20,000 feet mean sea level.

Each turret will be fully equipped with 1080p imaging cameras and will have multiple HD feeds streaming from the cameras within each turret. The turrets' high-definition imaging capability will uncover key intelligence by generating bolder colors, greater contrasts, increased image sharpness and more pixels on target.
"L-3 WESCAM's leading stabilization and impressive long-range identification technologies are ideally suited for a platform that will provide persistent ISR capability from 20,000 feet throughout its mission," said Paul Jennison, vice president of sales and new business development for L-3 WESCAM. "We're proud to be the system of choice and on a team dedicated to creating integrated ISR capability within a changing battlefield. WESCAM is well-positioned to quickly adapt to growth in this program as requirements increase."
The selection of L-3 WESCAM's MX-15HDi and MX-20D turrets for LEMV was made by the Army G2.
