This agreement has been signed at the Dubai Airshow 2021, which is being held at the Dubai World Central in the UAE until 18 November.

According to EDGE, a WESCAM Authorized Service Center (WASC) will aim to localise WESCAM MX service capability.

In addition, the transfer of knowledge will support depot-level service capability expansion into an advanced assembly facility.

EDGE Program Acquisition senior vice-president head Omar Al Zaabi said: “By collaborating with L3Harris, we will create an advanced assembly facility enabling end-users here in the UAE and across the region, to fully benefit from both Earth’s and L3Harris’ turnkey solutions, and greater knowledge sharing, to provide them with the superior technological, engineering, and logistical servicing of WESCAM MX-Series EO/IR systems.

“EDGE continues to seek strategically important relationships to leverage its position as the regional leader in advanced technologies to deliver to customers cutting-edge solutions across the defence sector and beyond, and to bolster UAE national capabilities in the field.”

The improved 42,000ft² service centre is expected to be operational next year.

It features tooling equipment needed to service WESCAM MX-Series EO/IR systems regionally and also localises maintenance capability to the UAE’s Armed Forces.

L3Harris Electro-optics president Kristin Houston said: “L3Harris continues to invest to create an advanced customer-care ecosystem and establish a foundation for self-reliant national defence globally.

“Together with Earth’s in-country experience and dedication to real-time mission execution, our regional support structure will increase customer operational availability and minimise maintenance turnaround times.”
