한국어로 다운로드

Korea Aerospace Industries selected L3Harris Technologies to provide surveillance and targeting systems for the Republic of Korea’s new Marine Attack Helicopter.

The L3Harris WESCAM MX™-15D electro-optical/infrared targeting and designating system will provide advanced, battle-tested capabilities for the currently-in-development helicopter, enhancing the RoK’s air, land and marine operations. The highly configurable WESCAM MX-Series EO/IR sensors integrate seamlessly with the helicopter’s target acquisition and designation sights, enabling increased situational awareness.

“This is the first time L3Harris has participated in the initial stages of a new South Korean research and development plan,” said Kristin Houston, President, Electro Optical, L3Harris. “The L3Harris WESCAM MX-15D EO/IR targeting and designating system will provide enhanced, field-proven capabilities for the new helicopter being designed and built by Korea Aerospace Industries. We are proud to partner with KAI and play a part in the advancement of the RoK Marine Corps Aircraft Group.” 

Under the new agreement, L3Harris will provide KAI with WESCAM MX-15D EO/IR units for its first development helicopters. L3Harris already provides WESCAM MX-Series EO/IR systems for KAI’s Surion utility helicopters flown by the National Police Agency, Korean Coast Guard and the 119 Fire Fighting Corps. L3Harris also operates a WESCAM Authorized Service Center in South Korea to support its customers locally.
