November 30, 2020
HAIFA, Israel. Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that it has won a contract to supply the E-LynX Software Defined Radio (SDR) solution for the combat battalion level of the Spanish Army.
According to the company, the new radio network for the battalion level is intended to be a first step in the Spanish combat radio network modernization program. The solution to be supplied consists of hundreds of handheld E-LynX SDR systems for dismounted soldiers and vehicular systems that will be installed onboard a range of combat platforms.
The company claims that the selection of the E-LynX SDR solution follows technical and field evaluations conducted by the Directorate-General for Armament and Material (DGAM) of the Spanish Ministry of Defense, including a close examination of the capability to implement future waveforms and to comply with strict security standards and anti-jamming requirements.
The E-LynX SDR solution that Elbit Systems will provide to the Spanish Army is similar to the solutions that have recently been selected by several other countries, including Switzerland, Sweden, and Israel, as the radio solutions for their respective army-wide mobile network modernization programs.
