Israel's Elbit Systems announced June 8 that the company will supply more than 1,000 additional E-LynXTM Software Defined Radio (SDR) systems to the Swedish Army, expanding the involvement of the company in Sweden’s tactical radio upgrade program. 

Elbit Systems is the supplier of the SDR network solution to the Swedish Army, having commenced deliveries in 2018. The latest delivery, which will be carried out through Elbit Systems’ subsidiary in Germany, will include the E-LynX handheld and vehicular configurations.

The E-LynX radio systems facilitate advanced networking solutions in both open field and in urban areas. The E-LynX family of radio systems, designed with an open architecture approach, features unique waveforms and enables the adoption of a range of additional European and NATO waveforms.

Installments of E-LynX SDR systems have been continuously increasing.  Elbit Systems is the provider of current and future land SDR systems of the Israeli Defense Forces, and it was selected to supply E-Lynx systems to other modern militaries.  

Haim Delmar, executive vice president and general manager of Elbit Systems C4I & Cyber, said: “We appreciate the confidence placed in our E-LynX solution by the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) and the Swedish Armed Forces. We are proud to be in a position to support the Swedish military as it enhances its networked capabilities.”
