Description

Missions & Platforms

Ideal for: Gunner Sight, Commander Sight, Situational Awareness missions 

Installations: Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs), Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) 

Independent Stabilized Sighting System


Product Features & Benefits

As a Gunner Sight
The WESCAM MX-GCS can identify threats beyond the range of the vehicle’s weapon system, allowing for standoff distance engagements at maximum effective ranges.

As a Commander Sight
The WESCAM MX-GCS provides vehicle commanders the ability to scan for, identify and track targets (Hunter) independent of the gunner system, hand-off identified threats between target acquisition systems (Killer) or fire weapons autonomously from the commander position.


Enhance Your Situational Awareness

  • 360 degree scanning capability independent of the gun turret axis 
  • Integrate a series of high-performing sensors for optimal visibility, day and night 
  • Mid-wave large-format cooled thermal imager 
  • High Definition (HD) daylight imaging sensor 
  • Eyesafe Laser Rangefinder


Reduce Your Detection Time

  • Real-time image enhancement of all sensors 
  • High-performance haze penetration 
  • Improved feature recognition and Identification 
  • Image blending – combine day and infrared night images into a single image stream, affording the operator the benefits of both


Uncompromised Sighting and Firing Efficiency

  • Fully active gimbal stabilizes and steers the imager and rangefinder’s line-of-sight in azimuth and elevation 
  • High accuracy gimbal position feedback for target handoff applications
