L‐3 WESCAM unveiled today its new Land Vehicle Surveillance System, the MXTM-LVSS, at CANSEC, Canada’s largest defence and security trade show, in the outside display area, booth 2019. Based on L-3 WESCAM’s industry-leading MX- Series of multi-spectral, highly stabilized imaging systems, the MX-LVSS is a modular and rugged solution consisting of low-risk, battle-proven, commercial-off-the-shelf subsystems currently operating in the world’s harshest terrains and climates.
L-3’s MX-LVSS consists of mast-mounted and remote-mounted surveillance suites with an integrated vehicle operator control station. The rugged system, adaptable to a wide range of platforms, obtains timely and accurate surveillance data on surrounding terrain and adversaries, day or night, while the host vehicle is stationary or on-the-move, mast-mounted or dismounted, in all weather conditions.
“As a turnkey ground vehicle ISR solution, the MX-LVSS provides state-of-the-art stability technology to ensure agile, responsive and adaptive surveillance. This greatly expands mission capability in real-world scenarios where the host vehicle is moving,” said Paul Jennison, vice president of government sales and business development for L-3 WESCAM. “The system’s scalable design supports a full range of surveillance capability and complexity, providing our customers around the world with system-level solutions customized to their precise specifications and budget. The new system is ideally suited for multiple platforms, such as the upcoming Canadian Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) Recce Surveillance System (LRSS).”
The MX-LVSS’ performance is configurable from a basic mid-range surveillance capability with variable sensor payloads to a powerful long-range system with integrated ground surveillance radar. This flexibility extends to the host vehicle’s interior, with capability ranging from a basic localized sensor control package to a robust and fully integrated mission management system supporting the collection, storage, processing, manipulation, fusion and digital sharing of sensor data and imagery across the battlefield to enhance situational awareness at all levels.
