Mechanical Engineering At A Glance
Our Mechanical Engineers are responsible for design of highly complex opto-mechanical and electromechanical components from concept straight through to production. Although our work is driven by specific objectives, goals and defined boundaries, we execute our work under wide guidelines.
Mechanical Engineering at L3HARRIS WESCAM requires the application of advanced engineering experiences requiring specialized knowledge for decidedly complex engineering assignments. Our state-of-the-art electro-optical stabilized imaging systems are renowned globally for their durability, capability and modularity. This is by no accident – our Mechanical Engineers are some of the best in the industry and are directly responsible for our success.

In addition to leading our design efforts, playing a key role in design reviews, our Mechanical Engineers frequently mentor other staff in complex design practices and development methods, as well as actively contribute to defining best practices and design objectives.
