L-3 WESCAM Launches the MX-10GS EO/IR Imaging Turret

OTTAWA, June 1, 2011 --[ASDWire]-- L-3 WESCAM announced today the product launch of its MX(tm)-10GS electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) imaging turret. The MX-10GS integrates L-3 WESCAM's fieldproven MX-Series technology into vehicle mast or tower-mounted turret configurations, providing force protection, border security and ground combat mission crews with a trusted solution to help identify, track and deter threats 24/7 from the ground. WESCAM's MX-10GS will be on display at the CANSEC trade show in Ottawa, Canada on June 1 and 2. "Our new MX-10GS has been engineered utilizing field-proven technology and leverages an established history of high performance," said John Dehne, president of L-3 WESCAM. "This newest-generation turret incorporates advanced imaging capabilities, HD resolution and a 360-degree vantage point that enables long-range missions to unfold whether crews are stationary or on the move." The MX-10GS can be configured with up to six leading imaging and laser sensors. Its patented stabilization, passive isolation design and high optical magnification support covert rangeperformance outside the audible range. In addition, the system's rapid zoom technology provides a wide field-of-view and pinpointed capability to identify urban and asymmetrical threats, increasing warfighter survivability in engagement areas. At 37 pounds, the MX-10GS is the lightest product offering in its class, which minimizes the impact on both armored vehicle and mast weight constraints.
