Burlington-based L?3 WESCAM has delivered its 2,500th MX-Series electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) imaging turret to the U.S. Navy.

In a press release, the company said it has provided over 400 MX systems in support of key U.S. naval programs since 1997, including patrol, precision targeting, irregular warfare and shipboard protection mission portfolios.

“As the requirement for maritime domain awareness remains a high priority, we are pleased that the U.S. Navy continues to rely on our longer-range and higher-resolution technology to effectively execute its surveillance and observation tasks,” said Paul Jennison, vice president of government sales and business development.

MX systems, which can be found in an array of fixed-wing, rotary-wing, UAV and aerostat platforms, share common electronics and cabling, user interfaces and video overlays, and software and internal components, which allows for simplified turret interchangeability within fleets, efficiencies in technology enhancements and streamlined system support.

L-3 WESCAM said the technology is now finding its way into ground vehicles and marine vessels.
