Elbit systems received a $20 million contract to supply software based tactical radio systems from its E-Lynx product family to an unnamed west European army. The contract will be carried out over a three year period. The new systems will be integrated in armored vehicles as well as infantry units.

The E-Lynx product family is based on a battle proven mobile Ad-Hoc Networking technology. The system is designed to serve as the mobile networking backbone for modern Battle Management Systems (BMS) and soldier systems.

Yehuda Vered, General Manager of Elbit Systems Land & C4I Division, said that E-LynX family of SDR systems are based on decades of experience and proven radio products and technologies. “The modern battlefield requires sophisticated networking capabilities for the maneuvering forces as an infrastructure for situational awareness and terrain dominance.”


Software Defined Radio (SDR) offer secure and reliable communications on the battlefield. It consists of strong error correction algorithms to eliminate the possibility of lost data packets, and a self-healing, self forming ad-hoc networking capability ensures robust data communications of several megabits per second at adaptable bandwidths.

E-Lynx product family allows for simultaneous transmissions of wideband waveform (WF) and narrowband WF. The narrowband WF includes simultaneous voice and data transmission using only 25Khz of the VHF bandwidth, while allowing a maximum data rate of 115.2Kbps. A distinctive automatic routing and relay capability dramatically extends its reach even over harsh field conditions, while mobile ad-hoc networking (MANET) provides continuous IP networking connectivity throughout any mission. The SDR is housed in a single radio unit, improving operational efficiency by enabling the use of fewer radios in the field.
