L3Harris and EDGE Open New State-of-the-Art Facility in UAE to Support WESCAM MX-Series Customers

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Feb. 1, 2024 — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX), in collaboration with EDGE, the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) leading advanced technology group for defense, opened a new WESCAM Authorized Service Center (WASC). The state-of-the-art WASC emphasizes L3Harris’ commitment to invest in its growing customer-care ecosystem and establishes a foundation for localized, self-reliant national defense capabilities among its customers.

Managed and operated by expert, locally-trained UAE nationals, the enhanced 42,000-square-foot service facility will be equipped with the tooling, resources and technology required to service WESCAM MX™ Series EO/IR systems operated by the UAE’s Armed Forces and other regional customers. Combined with EDGE’s in-country experience and mission execution, the facility will increase customer operational availability and minimize maintenance turn-around times. 

“The opening of a new UAE WESCAM Authorized Service Center is a tremendous opportunity to expand our services and support the defense capabilities of our customers worldwide,” said David Johnson, Vice President, International, L3Harris. “L3Harris continues to invest in localization and in providing unparalleled service support for its most advanced technologies.”

L3Harris will work closely with EARTH, an entity within EDGE, and its Electro-Optical Centre of Excellence (EOCE), one of the world’s leading EO/IR imaging and targeting sensor systems service facilities. The opening fulfills L3Harris’ commitment to enhance the UAE’s service capabilities and establishes a long-term partnership in the region.
