Effective Electro optical Infrared Sensors and the Technologies Within

L3Harris’ WESCAM MX portfolio of airborne electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) systems provides industry leading stabilized imaging solutions. For over four-decades, WESCAM MX systems have served all segments of the airborne market with turrets operating on a large variety of fixed-wing, rotor-wing, UAV and aerostat platforms.

WESCAM MX-Series EO/IR imaging systems provide real-time, full-motion situational awareness in support of a broad range of ALE missions - whether operating at low-altitudes for tactical surveillance or at medium-altitudes for more covert missions. 

Best-In-Class Imagery

Size, weight and power (SWaP) requirements are a key variable in choosing the best system to fit your mission portfolio. WESCAM MX systems continue to leverage advancements in diverse optical, sensing and processing technologies - resulting in the best performance per pound and best-in-class imagery.

With fully active, 4-axis stabilization, the multi-spectral sensors within WESCAM MX-Systems provide imaging over multiple wavebands, ensuring both day and night imaging capability over a wide range of weather conditions.


Systems Type of Mission Weight/Clearance
WESCAM MX-8 Tactical, Low-level < 15 pounds / 10.3 inches
WESCAM MX-10 Tactical, low-level < 38 pounds / 13.98 inches
WESCAM MX-15 Medium altitude, more covert < 95 pounds / 18.95 inches 


WESCAM MX systems, with their wide variety of available interfaces, can be integrated with most auxiliary components such as moving maps, digital downlink systems, slaved searchlights, mission computers and more. These interfaces ensure WESCAM MX systems can seamlessly operate with both digital and analog components.
