Elbit Systems adds multi-channel and full-duplex capabilities to the E-LynX SDR family of Software Defined Radios.
Press Release, Haifa, 13 October 2021: Elbit Systems adds multi-channel and full duplex technologies to its E-LynX family of Software Defined Radios (SDR), substantially increasing network throughputs, further empowering the Company’s SDR-based solution for multi-domain digital transformation.
When using Radio systems with single or dual radio frequency channels, the ability of tactical users to transmit and receive information is dependent on channel availability, which limits the reach and network presence of the users. Elbit Systems new patented multi-channel technology enables simultaneous use of multiple radio frequencies for transmission and reception, utilising one or more waveforms, providing all-time network availability and presence – a key factor in multi-domain operations. The multi-channel network capability improves the optimisation of spectrum resource allocation and enhance the capability to execute concurrent missions while maintaining fast, resilient, secured, interoperable and immune communications in any terrain. Current tactical radio technologies allow access to the network for a single user to at a time. The new full-duplex technology enables tactical users to exchange information simultaneously and have dynamic conversations, accelerating the flow of information in the battlefield.
As of today, the E-LynX family of SDR is the preferred choice of several countries for their multi-domain digital transformation, including Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Brazil and Israel. Elbit Systems will deliver more than ten thousand multi-channel full-duplex E-LynX SDR systems under several of these programmes.
