L3Harris Technologies to Deliver WESCAM Sighting System for US Army

L3Harris Technologies received a contract from Moog, Inc. to procure 33 WESCAM MX™-GCS sighting systems in support of the U.S. Army’s Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense Increment 1 (M-SHORAD Inc. 1) program.

L3Harris will provide a fully-digital above-armor sighting system in a single lightweight package to Moog. The sighting system will be integrated onto Moog’s Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform (RIwP®) turret; providing the capabilities required to counter unmanned aircraft systems, rotary-wing and fixed-wing threats. Deliveries to Moog will begin in 2021.

“Our U.S. Army M-SHORAD Inc. 1 solution integrates the next-generation capabilities soldiers require to address the threats and challenges they face while accomplishing their mission,” said Sean Stackley, President, Integrated Mission Systems, L3Harris. “The L3Harris sighting system, when integrated onto Moog’s RIwP turret, will provide unmatched performance backed by the reliability of the proven WESCAM MX-Series of sensors.”

L3Harris’ WESCAM MX-Series systems are active in over 80 countries. Operating across air, land and maritime domains, these intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems support more than 200 different platforms.

General Dynamics is the Prime on the M-SHORAD program. For more information, visit
