L3Harris Technologies has been contracted by the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) for the supply of WESCAM MX-Series products and services.

The technologies and solutions being procured will support the US Army’s surveillance and targeting operations worldwide.

Valued at $380m, the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has a performance period of eight years.

The contract will allow delivery of upgrades and support to the US Army’s fixed-wing, aerostat and unmanned platforms.

In addition, this will support the expansion of the foreign military sales (FMS) requirements.

WESCAM MX-Series systems have been used by the US Army in several combat operations, including current intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions worldwide. They have logged in more than four million hours. 

The systems are designed to gather critical mission information and offer high-precision situational awareness to defend personnel against emerging targets.

Currently, WESCAM MX systems are also in service with the US Navy and US Air Force Special Operations Command.

In the last two decades, L3Harris’ WESCAM MX-Series products have supported US Army aviation programmes.

L3Harris Integrated Mission Systems president Sean Stackley said: “L3Harris is proud to once again supply its WESCAM MX technologies and solutions to the US Army, as it highlights our role as a trusted global supplier of advanced imaging solutions to the defence industry.

“Through this contract, our highly specialised optics and leading technologies can continue to meet the needs of emerging mission portfolios, including time-sensitive response operations.”

In May this year, L3Harris delivered 656 combat-ready Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems to the US Army as part of a contract.
