L-3 Wescam
: 19 January, 2008  (Application Story)
WESCAM (L-3 WESCAM), a wholly owned subsidiary of L-3 Communications, has announced the delivery of MX®-20 electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) imaging turrets to Lockheed Martin for its tethered aerostat system program.


Lockheed Martinís tethered aerostat systems are equipped with MX-20 imaging turrets and other sensors to provide continuous surveillance, detection, identification and communications capabilities for U.S. forces worldwide. Lockheed Martin assembles and tests the integrated aerostats, sensors, ground stations and mooring systems at its Defense and Surveillance Systems business in Akron, Ohio. Fully equipped with an EO/IR imaging capability, the MX-20 will be a key element in support of stability and support (SASO) operations worldwide.

'We are extremely pleased to be on the team selected for the tethered aerostat program,' said Paul Jennison, L-3 WESCAM Vice President, Government Sales and Business Development. 'This selection continues our relationship with Lockheed Martin on its tethered aerostat program, providing a proven sensor solution for Lockheedís customers. Furthermore, this is another indication of how our MX-20ís evolving imaging technology is making a positive impact on today's counter-terrorism efforts.'

Lockheed Martin delivered its first tethered aerostat system containing an MX-20 turret to the U.S. Army in 2004.
