AUSA 2018: L3 WESCAM Will Demonstrate MX-GCS Sighting System

Four Separate Configurations for Short-Range Air Defence

In what it claims to be “an industry first,” L3 WESCAM will feature its MX-GCS sighting system on four separate customer platforms at AUSA 2018 in Washington, 8-10 October.

The MX-GCS is an above-armour sighting system that weighs up to 75% less than traditional glass periscope systems and performs with lower power consumption than other fielded solutions.

The demonstrations will feature a diverse range of mounting applications and advanced sensor capabilities in support of today’s critical ground-to-ground and ground-to-air requirements.

Today’s land missions require sighting solutions that are versatile and flexible and offer exceptional clear, long-range sighting capabilities,” commented President of L3’s Tactical Mission Systems sector (which includes L3 WESCAM), Matthew Richi. “We are excited to show how the MX-GCS works across various customer land-based platforms, and we remain focused on developing innovative technologies that give our servicemen and women a distinct advantage in the field.”

MX-GCS will be featured on four key customer platforms during the conference:

  • A Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform (RIwP) in a US Army IM-SHORAD configuration;
  • On a Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF) vehicle;
  • As a Gunsight and Commander’s Independent Viewer (CIV) option for the 3000-series turret;
  • and on a 50mm gun turret in support of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (ARDEC).
