“This grouping of new orders for L# WESCAM sensors is a direct reflection of our strategy to drive growth by engineering market-leading products and solutions,” said Jeff Miller, president of L#’s Integrated Sensor Systems sector.

“Our advanced imaging products are delivered to a diverse international customer base in both the defence and the broader security and public safety markets, and we see a robust pipeline of opportunities globally.”

“With more than 3,600 MX products fielded and an installed base that spans 78 countries, L# WESCAM remains a sought after, trusted and proven partner,” added Mike Greenley, president of L# WESCAM.

“We are proud to provide our stabilised MX-Series systems in support of evolving missions carried out by defence agencies at home and abroad.”

L# was contracted to provide MX-20 EO/IR imaging systems to the US Navy for installation on a number of P-8A Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA). Procured to support both US and Australian operations, the newly equipped P-8As will support worldwide naval missions conducted by the US Navy and the RAAF.
