L3Harris shows VAMPIRE and WESCAM MX-8 capabilities at SOF Week.

Military Embedded Systems
L3Harris Technologies is showing its VAMPIRE [Vehicle-Agnostic Modular Palletized ISR Rocket Equipment] display and the WESCAM MX-8 EO/IR system integrated on Vanilla Unmanned’s uncrewed aerial system (UAS) platform, as a way to highlight the multisensor operator experience, at this week's SOF Week 2023 show.  

"The L3Harris VAMPIRE is a low-cost, vehicle-agnostic, rapid weapon deployment system that enables ground forces to quickly and accurately engage targets, the company reports. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced VAMPIRE as part of security-assistance package under the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative in August 2022. VAMPIRE also features the WESCAM MX-10 RSTA electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) independent stabilized sighting system, which is aimed at use for reconnaissance, surveillance, and target-acquisition missions from amphibious, armored combat, and reconnaissance vehicles."

  • We are extremely excited USSOCOM selected GSOF to co-sponsor its newly envisioned “SOF Week” in 2023. SOF Week will be a national convention for U.S. SOF and include a more diverse slate of programs, to include professional development sessions, operator-driven discussions, and family-focused conversations. In 2020, GSOF was designated as a National Military Association by the U.S. Department of Defense, and we look forward to working with USSOCOM to make “SOF Week” an impactful event.
