A Canada-based subsidiary ofÂ L3 TechnologiesÂ has received a potential $49 millionÂ indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to supply electro-optical and infrared imaging turrets to theÂ Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Crane Division.
NSWC Crane will incorporateÂ MX-10MS turrets from L3 WescamÂ into a larger system designed to address a situational awareness requirement under theÂ Military Sealift Command Electro-Optical System program, the companyÂ said Wednesday.
Wescam’s turrets willÂ also support real-time situational awareness, low-visibility and nighttime navigation, reconnaissance, surveillance, coastal observation and navigational hazard documentation for at-sea missions.
“Our latest generation of maritime sensors has been re-engineered to meet the challenges of evolving maritime and coastal domain awareness missions that are conducted from all classes of manned and unmanned vessels,” said Mike Greenley, president of L3 Wescam.
The contract contains options for NSWC Crane to order ancillary equipment, product training courses and customizable in-service support programs.
