MELBOURNE - L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) is providing 57 WESCAM MX-GCS sighting systems to help U.S. Army soldiers spot manned and unmanned threats sooner than ever before possible.
This is the second delivery order to Moog Inc. in support of the U.S. Army's Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (M-SHORAD) Increment 1 program. Deliveries began mid 2022.

Integrated onto Moog's Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform turret, the WESCAM MX-GCS delivers situational awareness beyond the range of the vehicle's primary direct fire weapon and provides next-generation sensing and target identification capabilities required to counter manned and unmanned airborne threats.
