WESCAM MX™-GCS, Independent Stabilized Sighting System


An Ideal System for: Gunner Sight, Commander Sight, Situational Awareness missions.

Ground Installations: Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs), Main Battle Tanks (MBTs).

As a Gunner Sight

The WESCAM MX-GCS can identify threats beyond the range of the vehicle’s weapon system, allowing for standoff distance engagements at maximum effective ranges.

As a Commander Sight

The WESCAM MX-GCS provides vehicle commanders the ability to scan for, identify and track targets (Hunter) independent of the gunner system, hand-off identified threats between target acquisition systems (Killer) or fire weapons autonomously from the commander position.
