MX-15 True HD

Multi-Sensor. Multi-Spectral. Multi-Format.

Flight Proven with WESCAMs renowned high-stability

performance, todays MX-15 incorporates True HD technology,
featuring a miniaturized 1080p HD camera & Enhanced Local Area
Processing (ELAP) two industry-leading technologies working together to
deliver the industrys finest EO, IR day and night-time imagery.


True HD camera - Superior 1080p imaging resolution Multi-Format
outperforms competitive 720p systems Simultaneous digital & analog outputs
2 mega-pixel EO zoom and spotter cameras
Integrated MCU
True HD Digital Imaging - Meets the needs of new & legacy Installed weight reduced by up to 50lbs
platforms through multiple Digital & Analog output formats Eliminates 1 LRU
No image degradation due to compression Reduced install and support costs 1080p True HD
Enhanced Local Area Processing (ELAP)
Real-time image enhancement for EO Day, EO Night & IR
Charge-Multiplied Night Spotter and Laser Illuminator Imaging Turret
24/7 EO Imaging
Increases stand-off range 2-3x superior resolution over IR technology
Improves feature detection & recognition
High performance haze penetration
2x superior resolution over Image Intensifier technology
More Detail
Provides up to 4x electronic zoom Multiple laser payloads
Long Range Target Illumination, Pointing and Range-Finding
Solid-State IMU-Inside technology
All sensors share highest level of stabilization MX-GEO Gen.3 software suite Less Weight
No calibration required for LRU swapout Achieves highest target location accuracy
Auto align to aircraft AVGT marries Video and GEO-Tracking to provide robust
target tracking
Greater Advantage
Comparison of MX-15 True HD Output Formats
The full 1920x1080 pixel sensor is
Standard NTSC 720p 1080p
utilized for the 1080p image.
4:3 Frame 640 x 480
The central portion of the image
16:9 Frame 1280 x 720
sensor is utilized to generate the
720p image, an even smaller
16:9 Frame 1920 x 1080
subset is used to generate PAL or
NTSC outputs. 1080p has 2x the
resolution of 720p and 6x the
resolution of standard definition
