L-3 WESCAM to support U.S. Army?s Iraqi Air Force reconstruction program

L-3 Wescam
: 23 September, 2009  (Application Story)
L-3 WESCAM has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract to provide more than 50 MX-15D electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) imaging turrets with designating capability to the U.S. Army. The contract is in support of the Army’s Iraqi Air Force Reconstruction Program.
The MX-15D has been configured to meet the Iraqi Air Force’s requirements. Its integrated Master Control Unit (MCU) results in an installed weight savings of up to 50 pounds (23 kg) compared to similar sized turrets. The integration of these external control electronics into the turret enables lightweight laser designation and range-finding capability.

“We are proud to participate in this important reconstruction program for the Iraqi Air Force,” said Paul Jennison, L-3 WESCAM vice president, government sales and business development. 'The Aviation branch of the U.S Army has relied on WESCAM for a highly stabilized sensor system to support ISR operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan. This order further enhances our position with the Army as a leading, world-class supplier of designator systems.'

The first unit was delivered in June 2009 under a separate, but related contract from Yulista Management Services in Huntsville, Alabama.
