Systems has won multiple contracts for radios and night vision systems. The first deal was for its its German subsidiary, Elbit Systems Deutschland, which 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-LynX 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 optimisation 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.

Night Vision Systems
Elbit Systems also announced its US subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, recently was awarded two orders with an aggregate value of approximately $29 million by the US  Army’s Program Executive Office (PEO) Soldier under an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (ID/IQ) contract issued in 2020. The orders will be executed from the Elbit Systems of America facility in Roanoke, Virginia with deliveries through September 2021.

Under the orders, Elbit Systems of America will upgrade the US Army active duty and National Guard rotary-wing aviation units’ AN/AVS-6 Aviator’s Night Vision Imaging Systems (ANVIS) with high performance white phosphor image intensifier tubes. The night vision upgrade to the US Army fleet’s legacy ANVIS goggles will replace the existing green image intensification. White phosphor enhances the ANVIS goggles as it presents visuals in black and white detail, which may appear more natural to the eye. The new image intensification tubes will also provide better contrast, along with high image resolution at greater distances for pilots.

Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO of Elbit Systems of America, said: “US Army pilots can successfully achieve their mission and fly with confidence in any light conditions. Upgrading the US Army aviation fleet’s goggles to high performance white phosphor provides improved clarity. Whether soldiers are on the ground or in the air, our team is committed to providing advanced capabilities to the US Army to suit their evolving night vision needs.”
