Viriyakit of Thailand has awarded L3 WESCAM a contract to supply its MX-10MS electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) maritime sensor system to the Royal Thai Navy for its KRABI-class Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV). This is part of L3 WESCAM’s recent win of defence contracts valued at more than US$90 million.
Missions will include surveillance patrols, border control, disaster relief operations, and natural resources protection. L3 WESCAM’s MX-10MS was chosen based on a technical evaluation and overall system performance. This milestone contract represents L3 WESCAM’s first MX sale in Thailand.
“This grouping of new orders for L3 WESCAM sensors is a direct reflection of our strategy to drive growth by engineering market-leading products and solutions,” Jeff Miller, President of L3’s Integrated Sensor Systems sector, said. “Our advanced imaging products are delivered to a diverse international customer base in both the defence and the broader security and public safety markets, and we see a robust pipeline of opportunities globally.”
“With more than 3,600 MX products fielded and an installed base that spans 78 countries, L3 WESCAM remains a sought after, trusted and proven partner,” Mike Greenley, President of L3 WESCAM, added. “We are proud to provide our stabilised MX-Series systems in support of evolving missions carried out by defence agencies at home and abroad.”
