German Federal Ministry of Defence (MoD) has selected Elbit Systems' E-LynX Soldier Radios in handheld and vehicular configurations for its army.
The E-LynX soldier radios will be used at the platoon and company levels and will be installed onboard various combat vehicles including the SPz PUMA, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
Transfer of technology (TOT) will facilitate local development and manufacturing of the E-LynX soldier radios that will be supplied to the German Army as well as the development of further extensions and capabilities. Development and production will be done in the company’s production and research & development (R&D) facilities in Ulm, Germany, which will also serve as the support and R&D center for Germany.
The E-LynX soldier radios facilitate advanced networked combat solutions in both open field and in urban areas. This radio system provides forces with the capability to use several voice groups in a single channel and fast data services. It also enables effective closing of the sensor to shooter loop and accurate monitoring of forces location based on radio integrated Blue Force Tracking (BFT) capability.
The radios that will be supplied feature advanced networking waveform with unique concurrent flooding techniques that extend range over a multi-hop network, improve network agility and robustness while dramatically reducing network latency.
