Field proven, with extensive deployment, WESCAM’s designating systems offers “plug-and-play” installation, and high-sensitivity multi-spectral sensors for day, low-light and night-time missions. High mean-time-between-failures (MTBFs) are achieved through a diode-pumped laser target designator, and systems offer precise GEO-Pointing technologies for hands-free simplicity regardless of aircraft movement or obstructions. The capability is here. Now is the time to invest in visual technologies that dominate enemy operations.

MX-15D is ideal for medium-altitude, covert intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance (ISR), armed reconnaissance, CSAR, Target Designation missions

Installations: fixed-wing, Rotary-wing, UAV, Aerostat
