  1. Navy selects L-3 Wescam electro-optical sensors for P-8A jet

    LAKEHURST, N.J.- U.S. Navy maritime surveillance experts needed high- altitude surveillance electro-optical sensors for the Navy Boeing P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft. They found their solution from L-3 Wescam in Burlington, Ontario. Officials of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division in Lakehurst, N.J., have announced plans to purchase the company's MX-20HD digital, high-definition, electro optical/infrared (EO/IR) systems, technical data, and repair services for integrating the sensors aboard the P-8A. The MX-20HD high-definition, electro-optical/infrared system from L-3 Wescam is going aboard the Navy's P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol jet. The L-3 Wescam MX-20HD electro-optical sensor system is for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capability aboard high-altitude long-range maritime patrol aircraft and persistent surveillance missions. The pod-mounted sensor suite is suitable for fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and aerostats, company officials say. L-3 Wescam is the sole designer, developer, and manufacturer of the MX-20HD EO/IR system for use in the P-8A, and is the only source that is able to supply a system capable of meeting the P-8A requirements, Navy officials say. The government does not own the system's technical data and drawings. The MX-20HD EO/IR system has multi-sensor imaging and lasing payload options, and can support as many as seven sensors simultaneously for HD imaging from visible-light and infrared cameras. It also has three laser illuminator options. The system offers real-time image enhance for daytime, nighttime, and infrared operations, and its inertial sensors work together to create accurate target location, automatic alignment to the aircraft, and automatic image focus. The sensor pod offers five-axis gimbal stabilization with an internal inertial measurement unit.
