Spain chooses E-LynX to meet army combat radio requirement

26th November 2020 - 13:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Elbit to execute contract in six months

Elbit Systems is to provide its E-LynX software-defined radio (SDR) to the Spanish Army for use at the combat battalion level.

This marks ‘a first step in the Spanish combat radio network modernisation programme’, the Israeli company added in a 26 November statement.

Hundreds of handheld E-LynX SDR systems will be provided for dismounted soldiers, in addition to vehicular systems that will be installed on a range of combat platforms.

Elbit will execute the contract within six months, working with local partner Telefonica.

E-LynX  for the Spanish Army is similar to solutions that have recently been selected in army-wide mobile network modernisation programmes in Israel, Sweden and Switzerland.

The SDR was selected after a set of competitive technical and field evaluations conducted by the Subdirectorate General for Armament and Material Acquisitions (DGAM) in the Spanish MoD.

These trials examined the capability to implement future waveforms and ‘comply with strict security standards and anti-jamming requirements’, Elbit noted.
