Israeli-based Elbit Systems has won a $20 million contract to provide advanced tactical radios to a unnamed western European country. The contract will last for three years.
The radios are based on the E-LynX models, which include advanced mobile ad-hoc networking (MANET) and are fully function in any terrain. They also allow video transmission and tracking forces in the field through radio waves.
Udi Vered, the company's general manager, says: "We are proud to supply our customer with our new software-based radio system from the E-LynX family. It is based on generations of proven experience in the field of radio technology and products. The modern battlefield requires sophisticated networking capabilities for maneuvering forces, as a basis for orientation in the terrain and for holding ground.
"This success is the result of our continuing effort and investment in research and development, in order to produce military networks and modern radio capabilities," he added.
