L3Harris Technologies 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.
“This second M-SHORAD award reinforces our trusted partnership with Moog and the U.S. Army across the land domain,” said Sean Stackley, President, Integrated Mission Systems, L3Harris.
“Providing our soldiers with time-sensitive situational awareness is critical. The WESCAM MX-GCS delivers the capabilities required to assess and engage threats and targets with efficiency and accuracy,” he added.
L3Harris has delivered more than 1,200 WESCAM MX airborne and land-based systems since 1996 in support of U.S. Army programs.
