L3Harris' Next-Gen WESCAM MX Land Sights to Help US Army Soldiers Spot Manned and Unmanned Threats Sooner

  • Second delivery order will bring 57 new sighting systems to front-line units
  • Reaffirms demand for WESCAM MX target identification capabilities in land modernization programs
  • Secures L3Harris' position on major land domain platform to deliver crucial situational awareness

L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) is providing 57 WESCAM MX-GCS sighting systems to help U.S. Army soldiers spot manned and unmanned threats sooner than ever before possible.

This is the second delivery order to Moog Inc. in support of the U.S. Army’s Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (M-SHORAD) Increment 1 program. Deliveries began mid 2022.

The WESCAM MX-GCS is a fully digital above-armor sighting system. Integrated onto Moog’s Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform turret, the WESCAM MX-GCS delivers situational awareness beyond the range of the vehicle’s primary direct fire weapon and provides next-generation sensing and target identification capabilities required to counter manned and unmanned airborne threats.
