Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that its German subsidiary, Elbit Systems Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG, was awarded an approximately $23 million follow-on contract by the Swedish Defence Material Administration (“FMV”) for the supply of additional Software Defined Radios (“SDR”) for the Swedish Armed Forces. The contract will be performed over a period of 30 months.

Further to previous orders received since 2016 from FMV, Elbit Systems will now supply additional E-LynXTM SDR vehicular dual channel configuration, as well as vehicular configuration in full duplex multi-channel technology, as part of Sweden’s tactical radio upgrade program. The patented multi-channel network capability provides dynamic and autonomous optimization of spectrum resource allocations enabling concurrent execution of various missions while maintaining fast, resilient, secured, interoperable and immune communications in any terrain. The E-LynX family of SDR is designed in an open architecture approach. It features unique waveforms and enables the adoption of European and NATO waveforms. The E-LynX SDR solution was selected by several Armed Forces across Europe including Switzerland, Spain, and other NATO countries.

Haim Delmar, General Manager of Elbit Systems C4I & Cyber, said: “We appreciate the trust and confidence placed in our digital communication capabilities by the Swedish Armed Forces, attesting to the technological quality and credibility of our solution. Sweden is an important market for Elbit Systems and we hope to continue in growing our activities in Sweden”.
