Hundreds of E-LynX Radios First Step in Comms Modernization
Elbit Systems has won an order from the Spanish Army for hundreds of hand-held and vehicle-mounted E-LynX software-defined radios (SDR), the company announced on 26 November.
The solution – to operate at the battalion level – is a first step in the army’s programme of combat radio network modernization and will be implemented within the next six months in conjunction with Telefonica.
Selection of the E-LynX solution follows competitive technical and field evaluations conducted by the Directorate-General for Armament and Material (DGAM) of the Spanish MoD, including a close examination of the capability to implement future waveforms and to comply with strict security standards and anti-jamming requirements. The solution offered is similar to those recently selected by Switzerland, Sweden and Israel as the radio solutions for their respective army-wide mobile network modernization programmes.
“Spain is an important market for Elbit Systems, and we will continue to invest and expand our local capabilities and technologies in Spain,” commented Haim Delmar, Executive VP/General Manager of Elbit Systems C4I and Cyber.
