L-3 Communications has been chosen to supply electro-optical and infrared designating turrets for the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters of a Middle Eastern defense customer under a foreign military sales agreement.
New York City-headquartered L-3 said Tuesday its Wescam MX-10D EO/IR turrets will work to help the customer execute counterterrorism missions from UH-60s helicopters.
The company added its integrated sensor systems segment began to deliver turrets to Black Hawk manufacturer Sikorsky in June and is scheduled to complete deliveries in February 2017.
Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin subsidiary, is also the integrator on the helicopter program.
MX-10Ds are designed with sensors that work to facilitate precision engagement from tactical ranges during daylight, low-light and nighttime operations.
L-3’s Wescam business unit designs and produces multi-spectral imaging systems.
