Description: The L-3 Communications Wescam MX is a series of aircraft-mounted observation and targeting pods incorporating a new generation of imaging capabilities. They deliver class-leading detection, all-weather day/night operation, recognition & identification ranges, 20% range improvement with Infrared detection, and unmatched operational ease-of-use for both civil and military customers. The MX series also feature external control electronics incorporated into the turret, reduced Line Replaceable Units (LRU), and simplified installation and cabling. The use of common components and avionics simplifies interchangeability with efficiencies in support and technology enhancements while delivering low overall life-cycle costs.

The MX-20 is the larger version of the MX family of observation turrets delivering outstanding image quality and supports 1 to 7 payload sensors and various equipment options. The sensor options include an Infrared (IR) sensor with 4x zoom, color daylight camera with zoom lens, night camera with spotter lens, laser illuminator, laser designator and eyesafe laser rangefinder. The MX-20 features Enhanced Range Local Area Processing (ELAP) technology which produces real-time image enhancement for EO Day, EO Night & IR video.´┐ŻELAP technology provides an increased standoff range, improved feature recognition, and maximum haze penetration as well as improved image contrast, detail and increased dynamic range.
