Elbit expands involvement in Swedish tactical radio upgrade programme

9th July 2020 - 12:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Elbit Systems is to provide an extra 1,000 of its E-LynX software-defined radios (SDRs) to the Swedish Army, the Israeli company announced on 8 July.

Elbit already supplies the SDR network solution for the Swedish armed forces and it began deliveries of E-LynX in 2018.

Radios in the latest order will be delivered by Elbit’s subsidiary in Germany. Equipment will include handheld and vehicle-mounted configurations of E-LynX.

The E-LynX soldier radio is designed with open architecture and unique waveforms. The SDR facilitates advanced networked combat solutions in both open field and in urban areas.

It provides forces with the capability to use several voice groups in a single channel and fast data services. It also closes the sensor-to-shooter loop and enables accurate monitoring of force location via a radio integrated Blue Force Tracking capability.
