Mediated through W5 Solutions, a Baltic government agency, has ordered two MX-15 systems from L3Harris, a long-term business partner of W5 Solutions.
The systems will be integrated on a flying platform to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capability, consequently providing a higher mission success rate. The MX-systems will be delivered and integrated during 2022. Additional orders are expected during 2023 and onwards. Due to the nature of the program and the customer, further information cannot be given.
Today’s mission requirements demand identification and designation from long standoff ranges. The L3Harris WESCAM MX-Series products have been engineered to focus on the three factors that drive maximum range: resolution, magnification, and stabilization. As a result, each WESCAM MX-Series turret has outperformed its major competitor in every performance area, giving the Series the longest EO/IR target identification and designated ranges in the industry (in each class size).
“In today’s ongoing conflicts, there is a need for advanced EO/IR sensors that provide crucial day/night imaging capabilities for a broad spectrum range of missions to provide vital ISR capabilities to protect Europe’s border. We see a significant increase in demand for L3Harris EO/IR systems, and the knowledge, experience and innovation they bring to the customer make a significant impact,”. says Robert Dahlqvist, Executive Vice President and head of sales of W5 Solutions.
