The demand for L3 WESCAM’s MX-10 and MX-15 electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) systems within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Airborne Law Enforcement (ALE) markets has continued to grow in support of time-critical law enforcement missions. L3 WESCAM has seen an increase in global ALE sales, including many within Canada and throughout the US. These orders have resulted in over 113 different agencies utilising L3’s systems across 30 countries.
Recent orders have MX-Series systems configured to tactical helicopters, including Bell’s 407 and 406, Eurocopter’s AS350 and EC120, and MD Helicopter’s MD 530. Additionally, MX systems are conducting missions from leading ALE fixed-wing platforms, including Cessna’s 207 and 208, Pilatus’ PC-12 and the Vulcanair P68.
