Following a competitive solicitation and technical testing, Elbit Systems’ subsidiary in Germany was selected to provide the German Army with the E-LynX soldier radios (PNR 1000) in handheld and vehicular configurations. The new soldier radios will be used at the platoon and company levels and will be installed onboard various combat vehicles, including the SPz PUMA.

Development and production will be done in the company’s facilities in Ulm, Germany.
E-LynX is a Software Defined Radio (SDR) aimed to provide secure and reliable communications on the battlefield. It consists of strong error correction algorithms to eliminate the lost of data packets, and a self-healing, self forming ad-hoc networking capabilities to ensures robust data communications of several megabits per second at adaptable bandwidths. The devices for the German Army consist of networked combat solutions in both open field and in urban areas.
The radio system provides forces with the capability to use several voice groups in a single channel and fast data services. The radios that will be supplied feature advanced networking waveform with unique concurrent flooding techniques that extend range over a multi-hop network.
