Elbit Systems Awarded a Contract to Supply E-LynX Software Defined Radio Solution for the Spanish Army
Haifa, Israel, November 26, 2020 – Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESLT, TASE: ESLT) (“Elbit Systems”) announced today that it has been awarded a contract to supply E-LynXTM
A Software Defined Radio (“SDR”) solution for the Spanish Army’s combat battalion level. The new battalion-level radio network is the first step in Spain’s combat radio network modernization program. The solution to be delivered includes hundreds of E-LynX SDR handheld systems for dismounted soldiers and vehicle systems that will be installed aboard a range of combat platforms. The contract, which is of an amount not material to Elbit Systems, will be executed in cooperation with Telefonica, SA (NYSE: TEF, BMD: TEF), within a period of six months.
The selection of the E-LynXSDR solution follows competitive technical and field evaluations conducted by the General Directorate of Armaments and Materials (DGAM) of the Spanish Ministry of Defense, including a careful study of the ability to apply future waveforms and to meet strict security standards and anti-jamming requirements. The E-LynX SDR solution that Elbit Systems will provide to the Spanish Army is similar to solutions that have recently been selected by several other countries, including Switzerland, Sweden and Israel, as radio solutions for their Army Mobile Network Modernization programs.
Chaim Delmar, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Elbit Systems C4I andCyber, commented: “We are proud of this prestigious selection as it highlights the growing recognition of E-LynX as the SDR solution of choice in Europe. Spain is an important market for Elbit Systems and we will continue to invest and expand our local capabilities and technologies in Spain.”
