Merlinhawk Aerospace has signed an agreement with L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX), to open a WESCAM MX-Series electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) systems service center.
This strategic agreement is aimed at localizing service capabilities under a WESCAM Authorized Service Center (WASC) through the transfer of knowledge, specialized tooling and technical publications, which will support the advanced repair facility. This center will cater to customers in the region and will be established at Merlinhawk’s current Bangalore facility.
“L3Harris continues to invest in its advanced customer-care ecosystem and establish a foundation for more self-reliant system maintenance that increases mission availability and reduces total ownership cost. We are honored to collaborate with Merlinhawk Aerospace,” said Kristin Houston, President, Electro Optical, L3Harris.
Merlinhawk brings experience in the aerospace and defense sector, and provides users with superior technological, engineering and logistical servicing of WESCAM MX-Series EO/IR systems.
“By collaborating with L3Harris, we will create an advanced repair facility, enabling end-users here in India and across the region to fully benefit from both Merlinhawk and L3Harris’ turnkey solutions and greater knowledge sharing leading towards localization,” said Ram R Ramineni, Managing Director at Merlinhawk. “Merlinhawk continues to seek strategically-important relationships to deliver cutting-edge solutions across the defence sector and beyond and to bolster India’s national capabilities in line with Govt of India’s policies.”
