L# WESCAM announced today that it has recently won defence contracts valued at more than US$90 million ($120 million). The orders will provide a range of MX-Series electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) imaging systems to global customers operating in the airborne and maritime domains.

Key contracts include systems for the Royal Thai Navy, the US Navy, the Royal Australian Air Force, the US Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) and the US Department of Homeland Security.

“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.

L3 WESCAM has a 20-year history of supporting the US Navy’s MMA missions with MX systems operating on its legacy P-3 aircraft. Additionally, L# has provided the global maritime patrol community with over 250 operational MX-15, MX-20 and MX-25 systems.
